In The Deep Blue Sea

Here are two fascinating videos on Gaia Winery's project to find out how their Thalassitis Santorini P.D.O. Assyrtiko will age underwater. The first clip shows the actual process of submerging the wines, while the second is an interview with Yiannis Paraskevopoulos, winemaker and co-owner of Gaia, discussing this effort. Next year, they plan on comparing their 2009 cellar-aged Thalassitis to that of the same vintage that's been kept underwater in the Aegean Sea for five years. I would love to sit in on that tasting!
