In our wine cellar we also produce grape juice, barrique grappa, various liqueurs and nocino(*).
(*) Nocino is made of walnuts which are not ripe yet and get soaked in grappa or pure alcool over a few weeks and enriched by cinnamon, nutmeg or coffee beans.
The production process may vary from region to region and is often passed on over generations. Its origin, also called Ratafia, goes back to the Middle Ages, where only monks knew how to brew nocino. Its usage was for sealing the closing of important contracts.
Our small guiding tour through our wine cellar usually takes place after dinner, forming a perfect entrée for a nice evening on our panorama terrace, enjoying candlelight as well as the wide starry heaven and our home-made cantuccinis.
