BASSANO DEL GRAPPA DISTILLERY
The heart of the company
Bassano del Grappa is the heart of the Nardini company, where passion for the work itself led to the construction of various buildings essential to produce the highest quality products.
Bassano is still home to the Nardini headquarters, in the historic Grapperia on the bridge. At the edge of the city there are the discontinuous cycle distillery, the transformation center and the laboratory for analyses. Places where competence and passion meet to create a unique blend that tells the story of an entire nation.
MONASTIER DI TREVISO DISTILLERY
The art of distilling
In Monastier di Treviso the grape pomace is distilled using two different methods: discontinuous in bain-marie and continuous flow in distillation columns. The Monastier distillery works together with that in Bassano del Grappa to create one-of-a-kind products.
In addition, in Monastier the by-products created during distillation are processed and transformed into new resources to be used in different fields. This ecological process is an emblem of the Nardini family’s respect for the environment and for its territory.
Quality and culture
Bolle Nardini were presented to the public in 2004, for the 225th anniversary of the company. This modern work created by the architect Massimiliano Fuksas evokes the alchemy of distillation. Bolle along with the Bassano Grapperia, recount the company’s love for its territory while exalting its potential.
Located inside the company park that was created by Pietro Porcinai in the early 1980s, Bolle look to the future, serving as a research laboratory and a space to promote the culture of grappa, offering events and guided tours.
