Corsica wines

It was the Greeks who bought wine and the technique of wine making to the island of Corsica. Due to the soil and wonderful Mediterranean climate the wines from "La Corse" are of a high quality, with an annual production of over 80,000 hectolitres for AOC wines. Wine is produced all over Corsica, except for the centre of the island.
