The name grappa is derived from Graspa, the italian term for the husks left over after the wine making process has been completed. After the grapes have been pressed the husks are sent immediately to the distillery where careful distillation captures the delicate aromas of alcohol which lend the Grappa it's aromatic, distinctive flavour.
Continuing the family tradition which started with a Grappa distillery in Friuli, Italy in the 1920's, Girogio produces Dalla Cia Grappa with his son George the third generation Dalla Cia Grappa distiller.
Grappa is best enjoyed after a meal as a digestive, chilled or at room temperature and is traditionally served with espresso in True Italian style.
