|Grape cultivation and wine making have a distinguished place in the history of Greece. The wine and table grapes are the most important crops, where many famous people have praised them, like Christopher Columbus, who said "Four vegetables are essential to the well-being of a man: wheat, grape, olive and Aloe. The first nourishes him, the second raises his spirit, the third brings him harmony and the Aloe cures him" and Odysseus Elytis (Nobel Prized Greek poet 1979) "if Hellas is completely destroyed, at the end an olive tree, a grape and a ship will remain..It means that you can re-build this country using the above three elements”. Nowadays, the scientists have found that grapes (especially raisins and currants) are Super Foods and including antioxidants, vitamins C and K and beta-carotene. The grape and wine phenolics are considerably more complicated, but can we easily separated into flavonoid and non- flavonoid compounds. Generally, the high compound of total phenols content depends from the variety but also from the different rootstocks for the same variety.
