A new milestone for the winemaking tradition of the Gikas family was set in 1983 when its private wine lab opened. Representing a major advantage for the winery, the lab conducts ongoing analyses and studies related to the needs of the vineyard and to the production of the final product.

From ensuring the purity and stability of the wine to ensuring its compliance with regulations and standards, the wine lab has proven instrumental in furthering the success of Gikas wines. In addition to monitoring parameters and quality, the lab conducts chemical and sensory analyses that also help in creating unique, innovative products.
