BORTOLO NARDINI IS BORN
The son of Bortolo Nardini and Maria Maddalena Giacomuzzi, Bortolo Nardini was born on May 25, 1739 in Segonzano, in the Cembra Valley, near Trent. In a country where wine is a tradition, it was a widespread practice to distill wine pomace as a source of income and livelihood. At that time, distillers moved from house to house with a mobile still, working as third-party distillers of the pomace deriving from the production of wine. Bortolo Nardini took up this craft, and traveled all the way to Bassano del Grappa, at the end of the valley.
