Clos Ornasca was founded in 1995 by Vincent Tola, a native Corsican who had relocated to mainland France, but always harbored a dream of working the land in his home country. His daughter Laetitia shared his vision and after staging in Burgundy and Australia, made her home in Ajaccio and, after her father's death, has taken over winemaking duties. 

At a small 12 hectares, the vineyards are currently planted to Sciaccarellu, Nielluccio, Vermentino and Muscat (as well as Minustellu, a native varietal which she recently planted and/or grafted over a few rows). The Clos Ornasca (which translates to "born of gold" in Corsican) is aged in 100% stainless steel in order to preserve the varietal characteristics of the native grapes. Laetitia's husband, Jean-Antoine Manenti, now works the vineyards, helping this winery maintain strict quality control.

Laetitia has recently purchased a neighboring plot of 20 hectares that she's been waiting for 20 years to buy! She looks forward to expanding production in the near future.
