The vineyard is positioned between sea and mountains. Vines, olive trees, oak groves and meadows create a patchwork of farmland of nearly 140 hectares. The granitic soils that contribute greatly to Clos Culombu’s diverse, and harmonious wines, are made up of crystalline metamorphic rock with high silica content and rich in potassium, magnesium and manganese. The domaine’s indigenous natural yeasts also help enhance the characteristics of the terroir, and they are responsible for that marvellous transformation of grapes into wine. Corsica has many microclimates. The summers are hot, dry and windy, helping to reduce the risk of fungal diseases on the vines. The Suzzoni family made the move to become an organic growing winery in 2010 and are now in the process of converting to biodynamic viticulture.
