With its mild climate tempered by a cooling sea breeze, rich variety of soils and altitudes, Corsica boasts the perfect conditions needed for creating some of the finest wines in the Mediterranean.
With over 2,500 years of wine making experience, Corsica is a feast of indigenous grapes; with sciaccarellu, nielluccio varieties producing beautiful red and rosé wines and the vermentinu variety for white wines among the most distinctive.
There are nine origin-approved (AOC) vineyards that are open to visitors and offer wine tastings, most of which are near the coast, making a visit to one of them an ideal day trip for those traveling by superyacht.
Some of the best are found in the comune region of Lecci, on Corsica’s west coast just north of the glorious historic town of Porto Vecchio. These include the renowned PDO wines grown in the beautiful vineyards of Domaine Fior di Lecci and Domaine de Torraccia.
