Corsican wine comes to London
Corsican wines are coming to London - and not before time!
The French Wine Growers' Fair, taking place at the Barbican between Nov 21st and Nov 23rd 2008 features no fewer than three Corsican vineyards. It costs £10 to get in - more details at: http://www.frenchwinegrowersfair.com.
The Corsican wines on show (and more importantly, for degustation!) are Clos Fornelli and Clos Lucciardi from the mountain slopes near Aleria on Corsica's east coast, and Domaine de Vaccelli from the Ajaccio region.
That's just three Corsican vinyards out of the hundreds of French ones on show. Still - it's a start.
