Production Notes

Vineyards rise up from the slopes of the river on sandy/granitic soil ideally suited to growing the traditional Corsican grape varieties of Sciaccarello, Vermentino and Niellucciu. Founder Fèlix Andreani manages the 75 hectare vineyard with his son Simon. Vineyards are tended manually and, due to the proximity to the sea, benefit from the slightly cooler temperatures in this south west corner of Corsica. Occasionally one of the five winds - the Mistral, Libecciu, Tramontane, Gregale and Sirocco - blow through the vineyards, playing a regulating and purifying role, allowing Fèlix and Simon to avoid the use of herbicides and pesticides. The wine is Ecocert certified, indicating that the grapes have been organically farmed. It also carryies the French AB (Agriculture Biologique) organic certification, to qualify for which it must contain over 95% organic components. A basket press is used to produce the juice, Yeast is added and fermentation is controlled at a temperature of 16-18°C, which lasts about 12 to 18 days.
