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.
