is not a simple craft. It is an art based on knowledge, patience, skill
and vision. For us, to distill with care and passion shows respect
for all those who came before us. We have the desire to innovate, the
experience of having produced excellent results and the ambition to
improve. This is the philosophy of our family.
In 1957 our father, Vincenzo opened a small distillery. Since then
we have considered grappa not just as a spirit, but as part of our lives,
as something we love. The land where we live and work, Valle di Cembra,
gives us inspiration because of its centuries long tradition of
grappa making. Our oenological background constantly pushes us to improve our grappa.
The modesty of our father has always kept our enthusiasm under
control, and the energy and the teachings that our mother left us are with
us everyday. "Wise Saverio" who for years
helped us and taught us the many secrets of the art of stilling used

on the side of a mountain whose old sinister name of Mount Vulture,

is located in Portegnac on the edge of the wine-growing territory
of Valle di Cembra. It seemed to be the most natural place in the
world for distilling because is rich in the special water that helps
make our grappa unique. Nearby rises Mount Castrum, as the Ancient Romans used
to call it. It was a place where the ancient Celts invoked their spirits.
