A taste of the unexpected...
Corsican winemakers have been producing good quality wine for a number of years now. United under the "Vins de Corse" banner with the accompanying strap line “progress and modernity, tradition and authenticity”.
Since Corsica is effectively a “mountain in the sea”, each of its many valleys enjoys an individual micro-climate. There is also a huge variety of types of soil on the island, all of which are particularly suited to growing vines.
The island also holds an additional hidden treasure: more than 30 different grape varieties with evocative titles such as "Sciaccarellu", "Niellucciu" and "Vermentinu" make up Corsica’s extensive range of accredited wines, featuring CDO (Controlled Designation of Origin), Protected Geographical Indication and "Vins de l’île de beauté" .
The correlation between the different types of land and authentic grape varieties, along with the unparalleled expertise of our wine makers, work in unison to deliver powerful fine reds, rosés brimming with personality and blissful magical whites.
Not to mention the "Muscat du Cap Corse", a natural sweet wine made from the small-seeded white muscat grape. Extremely long in the mouth, Muscat du Cap Corse releases rich, very complex wild flower aromas, evoking nuances of citrus and quince.
This consummate wealth and diversity have afforded Corsican wine a defined role within the great wine category.
