Gaia Red and Gaia White are named in honor of the Greek earth goddess, “Gaia“–as well they should be. Fully organic in what is already the pristine Gualtallary Valley in Argentina’s Mendoza region, Gaia wines are a product of Domaine Bousquet–a hybrid of French tradition and Argentine terroir.
Domaine Bousquet established its reputation for quality Argentine wines years ago with its Chardonnays, Malbecs, and sparkling wines. With the introduction of the Gaia line of blended wines, Domaine Bousquet adds a new dimension to an already impressive line up. It’s hard to know where you’d find better quality organic and sustainably-grown wines at these prices.
Gaia White is a a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, and Sauvignon Blanc–a combination capturing some of the best characteristics of each varietal. Moderate in alcohol and medium in body, Gaia White is an impressive change of pace from straight varietals. 18.00
Gaia Red combines Malbec, Syrah, and Cabernet Sauvigon and gets ten months in French oak. Spice and dark fruity character are balanced with moderate tannins. Gaia Red and grilled meats are a marriage made in heaven. 20.00
