The Vine Leaves of Crete stand out for their tenderness, vibrant green color and wonderful taste. In April and May, the most tender vine leaves are harvested from the vineyards of Crete from unpainted vines.
The unique climate of Crete favors the cultivation of the Sultanina variety. This is how the best vine leaves are selected based on their size. Whole tender leaves located at the top of the vine and near the bunches, without broken pieces, with a vivid green color and soft texture.
The vine leaves are preserved in brine according to the traditional Cretan recipe, so that you can use them all year round and enjoy their nutrients and unique taste.
The Vine Leaves do not need scalding, just a little rinse with warm water and are ready to use.
