The domain

Domaine Vaccelli is located in Cognocoli-Monticchi between Ajaccio and Propiano, in the Taravu valley in the South of Corsica. The vineyard is composed of 25 hectares of vines planted on slopes on granitic arenas in AOC Ajaccio. Domaine de Vaccelli has become one of the best Corsican wines.

DOMAINE DE VACCELLI, A FAMILY HERITAGE

Domaine Vaccelli was created in 1960 by Roger Courrèges and passed on to his son Alain in 1974. The family began by building a Domaine de Vaccelli winery and uprooting the old vines already present to replace them with grape varieties such as Alicante, Cinsault, Sciaccarellu or Grenache and Muscat of Alexandria. In 1961, the Courrèges family began to cultivate this granite terroir, constituting the southern part of the Ajaccio appellation. It is today Gérard Courrèges, who manages the magnificent Domaine Vaccelli Corse, handed down from father to son.

AN UNPARALLELED TERROIR AT DOMAINE VACCELLI

Domaine Vaccelli has been in organic farming under the Ecocert label for several years now. It is therefore characterized by fine and elegant wines, which distances it from the standards of the appellation but makes its originality. The modernized Corsican viticulture at Domaine de Vaccelli and its typically Corsican grape varieties are the pillars of the appellation and the Ajaccio terroir. At Vaccelli, the wines are matured in demi-muids and in concrete eggs and respect for the island’s biodiversity is paramount. Whether it is Vaccelli red, rosé or white, all express a unique and qualitative Corsican terroir.
