If there is anyone we can be thankful for the delicious Italian elixir called Grappa, is Francesco Trusonni. In 1855, Francesco had the great idea to produce a distillate from a single grape, called “Grappa di Barolo”. Let’s give a round of applause to this man that has to deliver one of the best digestives out there!
In 1922, the company became the property of Mario Montanaro (hence the name of the distillery) and his wife Angela Trussoni. This couple and their son Giuseppe managed to perfect the process of making this delicious digestif. They also adapted modern equipment to the factory. Since then and until today, Montanaro has followed a long tradition, producing with the same alembics, methods, and even suppliers. We can assure you that this Grappa has not lost its style, quality, and essence from the moment of its creation!
Since 2000, the company passed into the hands of a group of businessmen from the Albese region. They have managed to maintain the quality of their delicious products and establish the distillery as one of the Top distilleries in the world.
