One fine taste which a few years ago was almost unknown to the vast majority of Greeks, unless they were residents of kos island, is the discovery of a very race cheese known as krassotyri or otherwise ¨the diamond of kos¨ . It is reported from different sources that krassotyri (wine cheese) in 300 b.c. was preserved in oil. During that period, there was shortage in the oil production in kos and big increase in the wine production. As a result of this shortage and the necessity of the locals to preserve the cheese it was decided to preserve it in wine. This decision proved to be very successful as the characteristics of the cheese improved not only in taste but as well in quality and the locals decided to continue this new recipe till nowadays. The company which constitutes tradition in the production of krassotyri in kos is YIANNOY N. PANAGIOTIS. Initially, the family business started in 1997 with the creation of a modern unit for the production of pasteurized fresh milk, dairy products and krassotyri. The continuation of the family tradition undertook in 2002 the younger son of the family creating today’s company YIANNOY N. PANAGIOTIS. The current company with big effort accomplished krassotyri to be included between the finest and rare cheese but also to intrigue the world’s best hunters of hard to find enjoyments. The owner, Mr. Panagiotis Giannoy points out:¨we are referring to a cheese that its special appearance, fine bronze roll, stamps it’s special fine indentity¨. Krassotyri (wine cheese) matures inside brine, enriched with the dregs of wine at preference local and it acquires a crust that keeps it hard even in his packing. This method redults in feeling immediately its gentle and intense wine sense. It’s a time consuming process, it needs a lot of help and special shearts called ¨tyroviola¨ that make the productioners from thinly(boyrla). It is from the tastiest, especially served with watermelon.
