Introduction

Corsica is a rugged Mediterranean island located approximately 130 miles (220 km) from mainland France. Officially a region of France, Corsica fiercely maintains a distinct and independent identity. Corsica is the seminal European melting pot; the island blends its unique cultural heritage with its French affiliation. The Greeks know it as Kallisté and the French call it Corse. Inhabited since the days of antiquity, Phocean traders were the first to plant vines on these verdant hills, surrounded by rushing rivers and forests of oak, chestnut, and pine. Today, Sangiovese and Vermentino (Corsica’s two key varieties) share the interior with unruly scrubland covered in garrigue, used to flavor the island’s cheeses and charcuterie. Yet, this diverse, enigmatic, and beautiful Mediterranean paradise holds many more surprises to discover.
