As part of the latest update from our Greek grape vineyards we’re pleased to share that our exclusive new varieties are starting to harvest

The first of our exclusive new variety grapes, ARRA 15 (ARRA Sweeties™) has started to harvest in limited quantity this week. Although the majority of our NV’s will start to be harvested from WEEK 35, the fruit is already of an exceptional standard.

The location of our Northern placed vineyards in Kavala has proven to be ideal with our in-country team reporting that the overall quality across all of our varieties is excellent. Weather permitting we’re looking forward to our best season yet.

Greek weather outlook

Normal weather conditions resumed this week across mainland Greece as Southern Greece temperatures settled around 32°C and our growing area Kavala in the north was in normal parameters of around 30°C.

Shipping from Greece

Contrary to the general flat market conditions throughout Europe, our loadings from Greece have started this week with our first container leaving the port to Jeddah. Our Far East loadings are also due to start in two weeks’ time.

As the season progresses, we will continue to provide the latest updates on our other available varieties such as ARRA 19 (ARRA Passion Glow™), ARRA 32 (ARRA Mystic Dream™) Sweet Globe™, Sugar Crisp™ and Jack’s Salute™.
