The Nonino family has devoted itself to the art of artisanal distillation since 1897. Forty years ago the Noninos created the single varietal Grappa Nonino Monovitigno®, by distilling the pomace of the Picolit grape on its own and turned Grappa from Cinderella into a Queen of distillates! The success was so great that Italian and foreign distillers felt compelled to follow the Nonino model.
In December 2003 the President of the Italian Republic, Carlo Azeglio Ciampi, awarded Giannola and Benito Nonino the prestigious Leonardo Prize for Italian Quality for their “absolute quality level, research and innovation”, adding that the were “the true ambassadors for Italian Grappa throughout the world.”
The Nonino aged Grappa and Distillates are bottled without colour additives.
