“Tempi Fà “(Once upon a time in Corsican)

In ancient times the strategically located Terra Vecchia was occupied by people carrying out agricultural activities.

The first vineyard

In the 19th century, Joseph Michon, bought together with Dr. Henri Rendu, the little property on the edge of the Etang de Diana. Joseph, a Doctor with a PhD in Letters and Natural Sciences, planted the first vines leading a hard life with part of his family. In 1887, with the arrival of the war, the family returned to Paris. While Henri Rendu had sold his share, the Michon family kept the Domaine until the 1960’s. (For more information about Joseph Michon - see his biography (in French)).
