The history of Black Corinth is as enormous as its commercial value since it is the main variety behind one of Greece’s most important agricultural products: currants, which merited a mention even in the ancient texts of Hippocrates and Aristotle. Despite the fact that almost 99% of  Black Corinth normally finds itself sold in a pouch full of currants, the remaining small percentage ends up in the bottles containing Mavrodaphne of Patras, the famous sweet red wine.

'Black Corinth' table/raisin grapes for trellis. When dried sold as Zante currant.
