VITICULTURE / VINIFICATION

• Sustainably farmed, using very small doses of copper sulfate
• Grapes are hand-harvested and collected into small baskets; baskets then placed in a refrigerator for several hours to keep their freshness


Vin de Corse Rosé:

• Juice obtained by direct press

• Pressed juice is decanted and undergoes 72 hour cold-soak

• Clear juice is pulled from the cuve and fermented in stainless steel

• Wine does not go through malolactic fermentation


Vin de Corse “Rosé de Pauline”:
• Slow fermentation from select parcels of Syrah
• Juice obtained by direct press
• Pressed juice is decanted and undergoes 72 hour cold-soak
• Clear juice is pulled from the cuve and fermented in stainless steel
• Wine does not go through malolactic fermentation

I. G. P. Île de Beauté Rouge:

• Grapes are hand-harvested and de-stemmed

• All three grape varieties are co-fermented

• Fermentation and aging in stainless steel tank

Extra Virgin Olive Oils:

• Made from Ghjermana olives, which are grown primarily in Corsica
