Wine has been made in Corsica for 2,500 years, and vineyards in the Corse-Calvi appellation are among the island’s best, thanks to fertile lands and a microclimate created by its location between the sea and high mountains. Founded in 1900 at the edge of the Bonifatu Forest, the Clos Landry winery occupies a traditional stone cellar and 60 acres, and produces local wines like light white Vermentinu, robust red Niellucciu and spicy red Sciaccarellu.
