Presentation of Domaine de Vaccelli
Domaine Vaccelli is located in Cognocoli-Monticchi between Ajaccio and Propiano, in the Taravu valley in southern Corsica. The vineyard consists of 25 hectares of vines planted on hillsides on granite arenas in AOC Ajaccio. The Vaccelli estate is very popular and is today one of the best estates in Corsica.
Domaine Vaccelli was created in 1960 by Roger Courrèges and passed on in 1974 to his son Alain, who trained himself in viticulture. The family began by building a wine cellar at Domaine de Vaccelli and uprooting the old vines already present to replace them with grape varieties such as Alicante, Cinsault, Sciaccarellu or Grenache and Muscat d'Alexandrie. From 1961, the Courrèges family began to cultivate this granite soil, constituting the southern part of the Ajaccio appellation. Today, it is Gérard Courrèges who runs the magnificent Domaine Vaccelli Corse, handed down from father to son.
Domaine Vaccelli began organic farming under the Ecocert label a few years ago. It is therefore characterised by fine and elegant wines, which takes it outside the standards of the appellation but gives it all its originality.
