Vines of Patrimonio

Dominated by Mont Sant'Angelo, standing at 354 meters high, the Patrimonio region includes the municipalities of the Conca d'Oro plain (Oletta, Poggio-d'Oletta, Saint-Florent, Barbaggio, Farinole, and Santo Pietro di Tenda). The clay and limestone soil is bathed in sunlight for much of the year.

In 2018, the Patrimonio wine celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Patrimonio AOP wine label. The winemakers associated with the designation are committed to eliminating glyphosate from their cultivation practices.

The grape varieties include Vermentinu, Niellucciu, Grenache, and Sciaccarello.
