Promis
2012
2011

The proprietary name Promis (proh-MEESS) was created by the Gaja family to denote commitment, expectation, fulfillment, and hope. The promise of quality and the reward of diligence and excellence. The grapes are grown in terre brune (rich, dark soils) which consist primarily of loam and clay. The climate - hot summer days, freshened by brisk sea air and cool nights - is ideal for the grapes grown here. Promis is balanced and approachable in its youth with considerable aging potential (5-8 years).
