Island wine is always a little different from the wine made on the mainland. It's special -- whether it's the terroir, the often obscure, indigenous grapes or the style of winemaking, we find these wines to be unlike any other. Sandrine Leccia makes these very unique and very delicious wines in Corsica with her husband Yves.
