In ancient Greece, the truffle was known as "hydnon" and was believed to be the result of the lightning bolts leveled by Zeus upon the earth. It was greatly appreciated as a gourmet treat but it was also sought after for its medicinal uses and, mainly, for its aphrodisiac effects. Pliny the Elder called truffles "Nature's wonders" while philosopher Porphyrius hailed them as "children of the gods"
At the opposite site the balsamic vinegar invented centuries ago as a medicinal balsam (as its name denotes) for using only from Queens and Kings. Through the time, the balsamic vinegar started entering in gastronomy, boosting the flavors. In Greece it is produced by fermentation from specific variation of grapes (basically Corinthian currant). The processing procedure starts with boiling the juice of grapes until it becomes fruity syrup. At next, it maturates in casks where acquires the special aroma, the dark color and caustic sweetness. The "Dirfys" company produces amazing condiment balsamic vinegar with truffle, which excites our palate!

In 2006, two young men, Eleftherios Lahouvaris and Athanasios Mastroyannis, both university graduates in Agriculture but also with great experience in mushroom growing, founded "Dirfis" – a company situated Northern Evia. Being dedicated and passionate lovers of the agricultural mycology sector, they are 'fiercely' engaged in the cultivation of pleurotus mushrooms and in the production of products of high gastronomical and bioactive, functional value. They participate in pioneering research projects in cooperation with universities; they constantly make sure they keep up to date with the latest developments in their field. Moreover, they share their knowledge of mushrooms through international congresses and seminars.
What "Dirfis" does, is to collect and dry wild mushrooms found in the Greek forests and launch them to the market. Eleftherios and Athanasios aim at creating new products based on mushrooms and also emphasizing their nutritious and bioactive ingredients.Dirfis has installed its mushroom cultivation unit at a safety distance of 7 km from the substrate production unit to ensure that conditions of hygiene are kept high and that risk of infection during pasteurization and incubation is kept at its lowest possible level.
Dirfis chose its location at the foothills of Mount Dirfis very carefully using stringent environmental criteria. The company's production unit is surrounded by lush vegetation and is characterized by a terrain that is ideal for the creation of the microclimate mushrooms need in order to grow. The location of the plant is free of any vehicle or industrial pollution and follows to the letter all the specifications necessary in producing wholesome products that are rid of any external polluting factors. One of the most impressive natural phenomena is how rapidly and suddenly mushrooms appear. That phenomenon is directly linked to the evaporation rate of the mycelium's growing fruit body and osmotic pressure. By applying the appropriate ventilation and by maintaining the cultivation cabin at the right temperature and humidity, the Dirfis team ensures that the evaporation rate of its precious cultivations will remain within required levels.
