L’Atelier de la noisette à Cervioni
Cervioni Hazelnut Workshop
The “Cervioni Hazelnut” has acquired throughout its history a widely justified reputation for quality, thanks to its green production mode and fine flavor.
After WWII, Corsica was the first French producer of hazelnuts – to such an extent that the variety “Fertile Coutard” was named “Cervioni Hazelnut.” Unfortunately, collapsing prices linked to the quantities supplied by Turkey with a very low labor cost led to the abandonment of this culture in the 80-90s, which remained a family work.
A revival of the industry began in the late 90s when producers gathered in the association “A NUCIOLA”.
