A bustling seaport and popular seaside resort on the west coast of Corsica, Ajaccio was the birth place of France's greatest soldier, Napoleon Bonaparte in 1769. Visitors come to this district to enjoy the still, unspoilt, natural environment, and the authentic French provincial lifestyle. Napoleon was particularly fond of Corsican wines and is said to have had a bottle of the full bodied Patrimonio on his table.
This show looks at the wines of Corsica and features a traditional game recipe which can be adapted for the home. Also, a speciality Corsican cheese tart. A traditional Corsican folk group is also featured.
