The wines of Corsica embody the singular reflections of an island nation. We think of it, dreamily. Its tormented relief, flooded with sun, lulled by the winds; for surprising, original, resolutely authentic wines. The Corsican vineyards are full of paradox: the southernmost, one of the most original, the sunniest, 121 peaks rising to more than 2000 metres overlook it. Here, history comes together with research and development. The simple mention of its grape varieties and its appellations takes you on an extraordinarily rich and varied adventure: Niellucciu, Sciaccarellu, Vermentinu, Patrimonio, Calvi, Porto-Vecchio...
PEOPLE AT THE HEART OF LIFE AMONG THE VINES
The wines of Corsica tell the story of women (1/3 of winegrowers) and men. This is the mission of CIV Corse; serving the entire wine industry. These men and women, out of passion, out of love for the land, the vine, for wine, out of tradition, through their hard work, carry out their labours and perpetuate the know-how that makes the wine so essential over the generations.
