NONINO ‘BEST DISTILLERY IN THE WORLD 2019’ by Wine Enthusiast Wine Star Awards
The Nonino Family has devoted itself to the art of Distillation since 1897. In 1973 Benito and Giannola Nonino revolutionize the method of producing and introducing Grappa in Italy and throughout the world. They create the single varietal Grappa, Monovitigno® Nonino, distilling the pomace of Picolit grapes separately. In 1984 the Noninos mark a new turning point; they distill the whole grape and create the Grape Distillate: ÙE®(D.M. 20.10.84). In 2003 they are awared the prestigious Leonardo Prize for Italian Quality for “the absolute Quality, Research and Innovation”, the Noninos are considered “the true Ambassadors of Italian Grappa throughout the World”. Always in 2003 The New York Times dedicates to the Nonino Family “A Dynamo and her daughters turn leftovers into gold” on the occasion of the thirty years of Monovitigno® Nonino. In 2017 the Nonino revolution “from Cinderella into a queen of the market”, carried on by the Noninos – is selected as a case study by the London School of Economics (LSE) Business Review. In October 2019, Vienna, the Nonino family is awarded the ‘Special Prize’ for ‘Bar Culture’ by the prestigious falstaff magazine.

The Nonino Distilleries, unique in the world, consist of five artisanal distilleries, each with 12 exclusive batch steam stills for the production of the inimitable Nonino Distillates, respecting the tradition and the rhythms of true craftsmanship. The Nonino Family personally takes care of the purchase of the primary products and follows the various phases of distillation to guarantee the maximum quality of the distillate. Nonino Grappa, ÙE® and fruit Distillates, Aged and Riserva, have always followed natural aging in barriques and small casks under seal and permanent surveillance by the Customs and Monopoly Agency in the 7 Grappa Ageing Warehouses of the Nonino Distilleries and are bottled without color additives. All ingoing and outgoing movements of Grappa, ÙE® and fruit Distillates subject to aging are traceable in the Nonino registers certified by the Customs and Monopoly Agency. Today the 7 Grappa Nonino Ageing Warehouses (M.I.G.) contain 2455 barriques and small casks of different wood, traditional toasting and Nonino artisanal protocol. Nonino Grappa, ÙE® and Distillates are obtained from fresh primary products distilled 100% with artisanal method in their own copper batch steam stills in Ronchi di Percoto.
