- Corsica is a small island that's in every way technically French and simultaneously not at all. The influence of the island's isolated geography can be seen in everything from the Curso language to regionally specific cuisine, and more subtly in the way producers Santamaria never had to "transition" to organic farming because the mass production craze of the late 70's and on was rejected from the start.
- Nielluciu is a grape primarily grown in Corsica and a clonal variety of Sangiovese
- The labels were drawn by Milena Bucholz, an artist based in Paris who designed our 2020 poster!
