Terra Santa, France

The Terra Santa vineyards are located on the East coast of Corsica, also called “The Beauty Island”, and come from a very long wine tradition; in fact, vines have been planted in the region of Ale´ria since Antiquity. Terra Santa means "Land blessed by the gods", ideally located between sea and mountain, the vineyard is bathed by heat in summer and freshness during the night. The local grape varieties are cultivated as a tribute to the traditional Mediterranean lifestyle and express the full knowledge of the land.

A mountainous, Mediterranean island covered in vineyards, Corsica, while closer to Italy in proximity and history, is today under France's political jurisdiction. The island is home to a mix of Italian and French grapes, typically planted at high elevations. Niellucciu (Sangiovese), Sciacarellu (Mammolo), and Vermentino (Rolle) are the main grape varieties of Corsica, and account for about two thirds of all Corsican wines produced.

With hundreds of white grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a soft and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is more fragrant and naturally high in acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
