Description

 

    In the legendary region of Nemea, Corinth (Greece) our family first started cultivating vineyards in 1876. Nemea’s unique soil quality and climate, in combination with our continuously growing experience in the viticulture sector, formed the basis upon which our family business has being developed ever since.


Type:Organic Currants (dried in the shade).

Differentiation:Natural drying process under sunshades.

Features:Dark blue/black colour, complete filling, non-changing flesh, authentic flavour and taste of Black Corinthian Raisins without the addition of caramelised sugars.

Drying duration:30-60 days, depending on weather conditions.

Drying process:We place the grapes one by one in handmade sunshades and we let them dry naturally for 20-25 days. Then, we take them down and leave them for 1-2 days under the sun to complete the drying process.

Raisins’ origin:Private Black Corinth grape vineyards with small organic production.

Vine Harvest:Once the grapes have reached 15 degrees Baumé (27 degrees Brix) we harvest them around the end of August with great care in order to keep all the grapes intact.

History

In Ancient Greece they called raisin (stafida) the dried fruit of "stafidampelos" and the raisin itself "stafidampelo". Raisins accompanied the wine in symposiums and were also used in cooking and sweets. In the Byzantine times they continued to use it for cooking but also large quantities were consumed by the Christians during the Lent. It was the Venetians who started the production of raisins first in the Peloponnese and later in the islands of the Ionian Sea.
The systematic cultivation of black currant started in the mid 14th century first in Northwestern Peloponnese (Corinthia, Ilia, Achaia) and later in the early 16th century it spread to the islands of the Ionian Sea (Cephalonia, Zakynthos). In the early 19th century raisins are the top export product of Zakynthos to Europe while in Peloponnese, war and destruction suspended its production.
