ABOUT THE DISTILLERY
In 1779 in Bassano del Grappa, the heart of the Veneto region of Italy. Bortolo Nardini distilled his grappa, and the story of the Nardini Distillery began. The foothills of the Veneto plain that surround Bassano assure the distillery a constant supply of grape pomace, the raw material for grappa production, collected in September and October after the grape harvest and pressing for wine took place. From the end of the 1700s to the early 1800s distillation occurred by utilizing traditional stills and the distillate was stored in copper vats.
