The Nonino Distillery was established in 1897 by patriarch Orazio Nonino in the Friuli region of Italy. They’re responsible for some of the biggest revolutions in the Grappa industry - in the early 1970s Giannola Nonino began making Grappa from a single grape variety. In 1984 they also gained government approval to use the whole grape clusters, branded as ÙE (pronounced “Oo-ay”). Today their five artisanal distilleries are run by Benito and Giannola Nonino with their three daughters.
 
Il Merlot di Nonino Grappa is one varietal, meaning it’s obtained from 100% Merlot grapes. It’s distilled slowly to allow the evaporation and condensation of the volatile components responsible for the olfactory characteristics of the Grappa. It then rests for 6 months before being bottled.

100 kg of moist, fresh pomace produces about 9 to 10 liters of Grappa.
Grappa is usually very high proof, above 40%, and has a somewhat justified reputation as firewater because, you know, it’s really alcoholic.
Italian law requires winemakers to sell their pomace to Grappa makers; this is a measure that was taken to discourage moonshine operators from producing their own juice. Sfortunatamente.
Italian law requires winemakers to sell their pomace to grappa makers as a measure to battle moonshine operations. They say it works. Sfortunatamente!
Grappa is grape-based pomace Brandy of Italian origin. Fermentation and distillation must occur on the pomace (“the leftovers” of winemaking); no added water is allowed.
