Carefully nurtured on our vineyards in Crete, the optimal conditions on our farm are cultivating our Thompson table grape variety to perfection.
We will begin harvesting around the end of week 30.
Thompson is a crisp, white grape that was been the mainstay of the seedless grape industry for many years.
The variety produces clusters of large berries in large, long bunches producing an oval shaped grape. Thompson grapes have a sweet and delicious flavour, with an appetising aftertaste and a crisp bite.
An update on our ARRA™ varieties
In Northern Greece, our ARRA™ varieties continue to develop well in the Greek sunshine.
The grapes are now fully formed berries and are developing well as their size increases and the harvest is scheduled around a week later than last year, expected to begin around week 35.
Overall, our ARRA™ production volume is estimated to be around 25% higher this year.
Our exclusive ARRA Sweeties™ (ARRA 15) are closely followed by fellow new variety grapes ARRA Sugar Drop™ (ARRA 30), ARRA Passion Glow™ (ARRA 19), ARRA Passion Fire™ (ARRA 29) and ARRA Mystic Dream™ (ARRA 32)
Our extended Greek grape supply
Our IFG grape varieties continue to develop well too. Well known varieties Jack’s Salute™, Sweet Celebration™ and Sweet Globe™ will be available from around week 42 onwards.
Cultivated to support the late season and offer an extended supply; our Greek season comes to a close with popular standard varieties around week 48.
