Grappa is the national spirit of Italy spirit. It’s obtained by distilling the combination of grape skins and seeds right after the winemaking process.

Grappa is obtained by distilling fresh grape pomace (grape skins or “vinaccia” in Italian) using a steam-heated method to prevent any danger of burning the grape skins.


Unbeknown to most, 95% of all aromas and health benefits of grapes is actually found in the precious fruit skin and not in the pulp.


Research has shown that grape pomace contains one of the highest concentrations of antioxidants and anti-inflammatories as well as numerous phytonutrients associated with anti-aging processes.


It takes the equivalent of ca. 200 pounds of grape or 20 pounds of grape pomace to produce one 750ml bottle of grappa.
