CORSICA WINES IN FIGURES

Corsica represents only 1% of the national vineyard, but a qualitative revolution is underway on the island. A deep questioning of the strategy of the vineyards, demanding work to highlight the most qualitative plots, and a selection of the grapes most adapted to their soils led to real improvements in the work of the winegrowers. Today, the island has four cooperative wineries and 130 independent winegrowers, many of which have been new facilities in the last ten years.

 

In 2019 and 2020, 180 hectares of plantations were authorised, which allowed new estates, often of around ten hectares, to increase their surface areas. Historic estates are larger in size, often between 30 ha and 50 ha. Building on their national success, exports of Corsican wines abroad jumped 21% in 2018. Corsican wines are mainly intended for mainland France (45%) and the domestic market (35%).
