GAIA, the Greek goddess of the earth, has been the Bousquet family’s inspiration since founding our winery 1997 when we pioneered and cleared virgin land in the high reaches of Tupungato’s Gualtallary district. From the start, our Gaia wines have been crafted with a French winemaking sensibility and made from 100% organic fruit grown at a cool 1,200-m/4,000-ft altitude.
Intense sun exposure and huge shifts in day-to-night temperatures combine to create a perfect marriage of Old and New World characteristics. GAIA Rose is made from the finest Pinot Noir grapes of our own vineyards. Those hand-harvested grapes offer a natural acidity, with vibrantly fresh red berry fruit.
