The Greek winery was founded by the agronomist Leon Karatsolas and the winemaker Yiannis Paraskevopoulos, who is famous in Greece. The name (Mother "Earth") was given after the Greek goddess of fertility and ancestress of all generations of gods. The philosophy is to focus exclusively on Greek varieties and to use their full potential. Before they built their own winery, they analysed which regions and native grape varieties have the most potential. They chose the island of Santorini (Assyrthiko) and Nemea (Agiorgitiko) in the Peloponnese. In 1994, the OPAP white wine of the same name was produced on Santorini under the label Thalassitis in collaboration with a winery.
