Following the successful season of first-year production of ARRA varieties in Kavala, over sixty growers, together with the teams from Grapa and AVI, the ARRA agent in Europe, attended the seminar and season summary of Open Field Day 2018. Mark Tweddle, Managing Director of Jupiter Marketing opened the seminar with a presentation on Jupiter activities during 2018 which included massive development of the ARRA varieties around the world, including Greece.

Open Field Day - start of the day

The field days were divided, Day One was especially set aside for participants from South American countries, where the visitors were shown the varieties suitable for their specific region and had the opportunity to discuss the challenges they face relevant to their countries. Day Two was open to all participants from the remaining countries throughout the world.

ARRA; For a variety of tastes

The attendees were divided into groups, each group was guided by their local ARRA agronomists. Throughout the field days our guests enjoyed the chance to sample the mid and mid-late varieties fresh from the vines and visited the Giumarra’s commercial plot of ARRA 15 (ARRA SWEETIES).  It was a great Open Field Day!

ARRA - a party in the mouth

Introducing the new Muscat line

The long road of trials and evaluations has led us to overcome a genetic predisposition to discoloration, achieving a new generation of ARRA Muscat grapes (The Muscateers), clean, sweet and with an unforgettable flavor.

A great way to end the day
