CHRISTOS SYKIOTIS/MELOS ROSIN

According to archeological findings throughout Greece’s history the use of the pine tree resin was widely spread out. It was used not only for specialized jobs but also in everyday life’s activities. It was particularly used for winemaking (retsina) both for the bottling of the wine into the amphora (jars) and as an ingredient in the first stages of the wine production. This remains its most well known use to date. Other usages include: as flammable substance, as indoor lighting source, as insulating substance in new ships, and also in making papyrus. The Greek pine tree resin is famous for its quality as raw material. Very popular in Greece is the pine tree resin from Chalkidiki in North Greece.
