Presentation of the estate :
Created in 1973 by Paul Suzzoni, the vineyard occupies 60 of the 154 hectares of the property. In 1986, the operation was taken over by Etienne Suzzoni, Paul's brother.
These vines, facing south between Monte Grosso (2000m) and the Gulf of Calvi, are cultivated according to the traditional method: without chemical fertilizers or weedkillers.
The grape variety respects the typicity of the Corsican vineyard (Nielluccio, Sciaccarello, Vermentino). The Mediterranean grape varieties (Syrah, Cinsault) complete the blend of rosés. Since 2010, in the new cellar, a space and modern equipment allow to improve the quality of the work .
In addition, the estate turned to organic farming.
