Orenga de Gaffory

Orenga de Gaffory Review

The Orenga de Gaffory reputation as serious wine connoisseurs and vinters traces back to the grandfather of the elder Jean-Pierre who created Corsica's most famous aperitif, the Cap Mattei grape-based liqueur. After the sale of Cap Mattei in the 1960s, the younger generation built the Patrimonio appelation on more than 50 acres with cultivation expertise and operational savvy. Located at the base of Cap Corse Peninsula, the vineyards produce most of Corsica's best wines. Sample more than 20 varieties and prestigious cuvées. Combining the family's passion for contemporary art, a modern gallery is an added visual bonus when you tour the winery and its well-stocked caves. A must-see for oenophiles.
