One of the pioneers of the modern Greek wine revolution, Gai’a Estate (pronounced Yay-ya) was established in 1994 by Leon Karatsalos and winemaker Yiannis Paraskevopoulos. Their mission was to capture the best that Greece’s indigenous grapes have to offer by merging traditional viticultural and production methods with innovative techniques. The estate is named after “Mother Earth,” in honor of the unique terroir that gives birth to these world-class wines. 

About the Vineyard

The grapes for the Monograph Moschofilero come from vineyards located in the Arcadian plateaus in the Mantinia region of Peloponnese, at an altitude of 1,500ft. In this cool climate, the pink-skinned Moschofilero thrives, developing intense, spicy and floral aromatics and crisp acidity.

Tasting Notes

This lively, dry white wine has an intensely floral and fruity nose, with hints of rose petal and spice. A refreshing wine, with a crisp acidity and flavorful finish.

Food Pairing

Playing off its charactistically floral bouquet, this wine is a great pairing for seafood, Middle Eastern and Asian cuisine, or paired with fresh fruit or fruit-based desserts.
