45 min from Porticcio, take the D55 on the ring- road then take on the right the D302, and follow it to Cognocoli Monticchi.
222 inhabitants are present in many areas : Cognoccoli, Marato, Pratavone, and Gradella ; the hamlet Monticchi was desert since half a century.
Marato exposes, since 2004, on the place of the old school, a contemporary masterpiece of Alexandre Perigot who is an international artist.
Although it’s a small village, you can discover a great wealth of wine there. Indeed, the Vineyards Vaccelli and Pratavone share the place.
The Courrèges family has been a fervent lover of the wine for generations. Alain took over the reins of the family business, Domaine Vaccelli, which he later shared with his son.
After a world tour of the vineyards, her daughter Isabelle chooses to return to work in Corsica with her father. The generations don’t always understand each other, but the common passion which animates them allows them to make the synthesis between the considerable experience of the father and the innovative ideas of the daughter. The result is the Domaine Pratavone which she now takes care of alone.
