Distilleria Bertagnolli
Grappa di Amarone Valpolicella
Trentino

Founded in 1870, the Distilleria Bertagnolli has carried on the tradition of high-quality spirits for four generations.  Once the supplier to imperial courts, Bertagnolli continues to hone its techniques in order to craft smooth, aromatic grappas.  

The distillery is located in the Piana Rotaliana at the foot of the Italian Dolomites.  This landscape, once described by Dante as the “most beautiful vineyard in Europe”, is one of the few locations in Italy where the native Teroldego varietal is cultivated.  The grapes of this region are renowned for their rich aromatics, and Bertagnolli uses the pomace from these grapes to craft a grappa with nuanced aromas.
