Situated in South Corsica in the Taravo valley, the domaine Comte Abbatucci was founded in 1950. With 18 hectares of vineyards planted on granite slopes at 100m above sea level, the domaine is a veritable museum of Corsican viticultural history and heritage. 
 
Current winemaker, Jean-Charles Abbatucci, has moved towards biodynamic principles and also joined the association 'Renaissance des Appellations'.
 
The domaine grows a delightful range of indigenous grape varieties such as: Vermentino, Niellucio, Sciaccarello and Barbarossa. Jean-Charles Abbatucci is a proud defender of tradition and the environment - a true veteran, marvelously reflected in the wine.
