No grappa! Or is there?

Macar­do uses a multi­tu­de of dif­fe­rent grape varie­ties for its pro­duc­tion of high-qua­li­ty grap­pas. Our Pinot pomaces are distil­led fresh­ly pres­sed and stored in spe­ci­al­ly selec­ted casks for several years. Smooth and vel­ve­ty notes from the cask cha­rac­te­ri­ze this fine bran­dy. The Mül­ler-Thur­gau, bott­led as clear, has a spring-like, flowery aro­ma and stands out for its uni­que­ness.

For legal rea­sons, bran­dies made from pomaces left over from wine pro­duc­tion may be cal­led “grap­pa” only in Ita­li­an-speaking regi­ons. That’s why we call the­se spe­ci­fic bran­dies made from regio­nal grape varie­ties “Aqua­vi­te di vin­ac­cia”. For its fine Cuvée Reser­va, Macar­do uses Pinot Noir, Char­don­nay, and Gewürz­tra­mi­ner pomaces. It is stored in used Macar­do whis­ky casks, which lend it its mul­ti­laye­red, illus­trious note.
