Vostizza Currants are some of the finest currants produced anywhere in the world. In exactly the same way as the great wines of France are produced in small areas where the soil and climatic conditions are favourable, so the Vostizza Currant benefits from its cultivation high in the hills surrounding the town of Aeghion. This outstanding fruit proudly bears the ancient name of that town, Vostizza, where it is exclusively produced.
Indeed, so outstanding is the character of this fruit that the Vostizza name and quality was protected from the introduction of inferior qualities by Presidential decree and later by Greek law. Since 1993 the European Union certified Vostizza Currants as a product of Protected Designation of Origin .
