Gaia Wines, in Nemea (Koutsi) is the creation of two agriculturists (Giannis Paraskevopoulos, Leon Karatsalos), while the first one is a PhD of oenology as well as a professor of oenology. In other words, there is no way two agriculturists won’t place emphasis on the vineyard and that is exactly what they do. Therefore low yields and the appropriate cultivation is a rule for Gaia Wines. So this winery has produced iconic wines for the Greek market, just like it was with the other winery of the company, in Santorini. Gaia Wines was, anyway, established in 1997, in the heart of the semi-mountainous vineyard, with the goal of thoroughly investigating Greek grape varieties, to their limits, with knowledge and proper use of state of the art technology.

Why it’s worth visiting Because Gaia Wines is a winery truly full of vineyards, with a panoramic view of the plain of Nemea and of the valley of river Asopus. It is a simple winery which does not focus yet so much on wine tourism, it is dedicated to wine production. Thus it offers a more course reality of a wine-producing building of its size. Its state of the art equipment includes, among others, some of the first open oak tanks for wine production that came to Greece, which are, on their own, a sight of modern Greek wine production. This is because Gaia Wines produces excellent vinegar ass well which is worth trying for every visitor.
