The "Yiayias’ Tastes" Cretan grape-juice syrup is made from grape concentrate taken from the exceptional fresh ripe grapes of the region. Our grapes are excellent because they are grown in fertile soils and temperate climate cooled by sea breeze of the Aegean sea. The grapes are picked one by one and the must is derived out of them in a mild way.
The raw material, its traditional way of manufacture (based on our grandmothers’ recipes), the passion and thorough cleaning are the elements that make our product unique.
