The granite and schist soil of the Domaine U Stiliccionu produces a 100%
Vermentinu white wine of "grande pureté" with outstanding mineral notes in
this wine. Sébastien Poly, wine maker at Domaine U Stiliccionu, is only in
his mid-30s, and took over the domain in 2005 from his grandfather after
studying business in Toulouse and having attended an agricultural high
school in Cahors, and worked in vineyards in Hungary and New Zealand. That's
definitely not the traditional career path of most winemakers on the island.
He's also open to new ideas, converting the vineyard, which he has expanded
to six hectares (just over 13 acres) to biodynamic culture in 2008.
