Once grapes for raisins are picked, they are sun-dried over stone dryers (chaff) for about 15-20 days to reach a natural and consistent dehydration. This drying method ensures the preservation of their organoleptic properties. Once in the production line, the product goes through several stages: de-stemming, washing, and selection, to end up in the final packing.
Through a pruning system, the plant is guided to bear fruits evert year from a different side. With this ystem, it is possible to prune the plant instead of picking the bunches, thus grapes start dehydrating while still clining onto te arbor. Finally, we can pick much-higher quality raisins, since they never reach the ground. This system is called DOV (dry on vine).
