Discover Wines

You cannot come to Corsica and sample its cheeses without being tempted by one of the many wines produced in one of the eight classified AOC (controlled term of origin) regions (Ajaccio, Calvi, Cap Corse and Patrimonio, Porto-Vecchio, Figari, Sartène and the Vin de Corse AOCs).
Although some red wines are bitter and powerful, they can provide a perfect balance to a meal and make the ideal accompaniment to cold pork dishes, cheeses and game.
Red wines: The Alzeto vineyard and the Pratavone estate for the Ajaccio region, the Fiumicicoli and Mosconi estates for the Sartène region, the Torracia estate for Porto-Vecchio, the Reginu vineyard for Calvi, the Arena and the Conca Ora for the Patrimonio region, and also the Cagna and the Canarelli estates have much improved over time.
The white wines have floral aromas and are the perfect accompaniment to fish and seafood.
White wines: The Renucci white for the Calvi region, the vineyards of Marfisi and Orenga de Gaffory (which is excellent) for Patrimonio, the Tanella estate for Figori and the Nicrosi vineyard for white or Muscat from the Cap Corse region are all noteworthy examples.

Between the mountains and the sea, the quality of Corsica's wines is due to the island's mild and summery climate.

The search for quality pushes the wine-growers to focus as much on the wines themselves as on the AOC label.
