This month, September, the French Winophiles continue their love for French wines and wine regions with a focus on Corsica. That small oval-ish green highlighted island in the map above, that sidles up to Italy more than France. Corsica does what any island in the Mediterranean would do: offers locals and visitors beach life, immense history dating to the Mesolithic era, excellent SCUBA diving, snorkeling, and sailing, rugged terrain for hiking and other outdoor adventures, and of course, food and wine! Corsican food and wine have distinct Italian influences, but it took the French government and its proclivity to organise and categorise pretty much anything, to get the wine regions of Corsica organised into 9 AOCs starting in 1968.

You don't have to believe me about Corsican wine being a real thing, just have a look below at what the other #Winophiles are saying about it on their blogs and during our Twitter chat on 21 September at 8 AM PST. To join the Twitter chat, search for the hashtag #winophiles and jump in!
