Domaine Vetricie, AOP Corse, is located in the municipality of Aghione, Costa Serena.
Acquired by the Barcelo family in 1966, it expresses all the attributes of a high-quality Corsican wine. The Vetriccie vineyard now covers almost 120 ha in the heart of the Vin de Corse appellation.
The particularly favourable orientation and geographical situation of these vineyards situated between sea and mountains, the unique vine population, a harmonious blend of native grape varieties (Niellucciu and Sciaccarellu) and Mediterranean grape varieties, produce aromatic and elegant wines that reflect the potential of this renowned Terroir.
The current owner Daniel Barcelo, in light with his winemaking experience in the new world, is firmly committed to viticulture in harmony with our Corsican nature.
