The estate was founded in 1973 by Paul Suzzoni, brother of current owner Etienne Suzzoni. The 60-hectare vineyard is part of a larger 154-hectare property which faces south towards the Gulf of Calvi and Monte Grosso. The area is known locally as the Garden of Corsica and is home to the Vin de Corse-Calvi appellation, one of the finest on the island. From his organic estate, Etienne makes a range of subtle yet complex reds using Nielluccio (aka Sangiovese in Italy) and Sciacarello (a native red grape) with the addition of a little Syrah, Grenache and Cinsault, and robust whites made mainly from Vermentino. This dry white is 100% Vermentino and is packed with tropical fruit flavours and makes for a fantastic food wine.

A clear, bright gold in colour with flashes of green. On the nose aromas of pear, mango and wild mint with faint notes of green herbs. In the mouth, fresh and rich with a pleasant astringency. Intense tropical fruit flavours suggesting lychees and ginger. The finish is refreshing with a touch of spice. Fantastic food wine with slow cooked veal with olives, sardines stuffed with chard and Brocciu cheese or stuffed squid in a crab sauce.
