Thalassitis Submerged

A few words about the wine:
In 2009, «Gaia Oinopoitiki» in collaboration with the Volcano Dive Center carried out a bold experiment: The immersion of 450 bottles of «Thalassitis» in a «submarine cellar» in Santorini. At a depth of 25 meters, the effect of oxygen is zero and, therefore, its role in the aging of wine is non-existent. Unfortunately, in the first year, 2009, 447 bottles were destroyed out of the original 450.This means that only three bottles were practically saved.
Luckily, in 2010 we received 258 bottles. «Submerged Thalassitis 2010» matured, for five years, in conditions of complete absence of oxygen and in temperatures of the Aegean Sea bottom. It is a rare wine in all respects, while it is a pleasure for every self-respecting wine lover.
