From the distillery to the table

Listen to the master distiller while he tells you about how authentic Trentino grappa is made, then savour the taste during an exclusive dinner.

Have you ever seen a still? Large domes, shiny copper pipes, thermometers and pressure gauges, with round windows that seem to look out onto a deep, dark world... It almost looks like a magical instrument that the master distiller skilfully uses to transform grape marc into fine Trentino grappa.

And after watching the creation of this product, there is nothing better than actually tasting it during an original dinner serving excellent local cuisine.
