Lina Pieretti-Venturi is one of only four winemakers on the Cap Corse (the northernmost peninsula) and one of only two female vignerons on the whole Island of Corsica. Lina farms 11 hectares of vine holdings just outside Santa Severa, near Luri from which she produces tiny volumes of dry rosé and sweet Muscat.View more wines from this producer...
