  • Grapes


  • The grapes are pulverized to make a pulp called pomace.
  • This pomace is then heated, distilled, chilled, stored, and cured for six or more months.
  • Some types of grappa are aged in casks made from oak, acacia or ash wood to deepen the flavor.


This specialty alcohol is best consumed as a digestif and is a popular warming drink during long winters.
