A grappa start-up
The Castagner Distillery is situated in Italy's Veneto region, in a strategic wine-growing area: a modern structure that innovates traditional grappa using highly-technological equipment and systems, making this one of the most pioneering and advanced companies in the entire industry.
Grappa is a spirit made by distilling grape skins. The terroir, the climate and the way the grapes are grown undoubtedly characterise the identity of the grappa, which is different for every region in Italy.
Veneto, in particular, is one of the regions where the art of distilling has developed the most.
The Castagner Distillery is situated on the slopes of the Conegliano-Valdobbiadene Prosecco hills, near to the historical Cerletti Oenology School, where the Master Distiller graduated, followed by his nephew Carlo.
Did you know?
The word “grappa” comes from the word “graspo” in Venetian dialect, meaning “bunch”, thereby expressing the strong link with the raw material used to make it: grapes.
Grappa is protected by Italian and European law, which states that this name may only be used to refer to a spirit made from grapes that have been grown and distilled in Italy.
