The Nonino Distillery, based in Udine, boasts a history of great tradition and innovation in the field of distillation. Founded in 1897 by Orazio Nonino, the company began its activity by producing high quality grappas in accordance with the local traditions of Friuli-Venezia Giulia.
In the 1970s, the distillery underwent a significant transformation thanks to the intuition of Benito Nonino, who introduced discontinuous steam distillation. This innovation has made it possible to preserve the more delicate aromas and flavors of the grapes, paving the way for the creation of new highly refined distillates. The Nonino family has also developed the concept of “monovitigno”, producing grappas that fully express the varietal characteristics of grapes such as Moscato, Merlot and Pinot Grigio. This pioneering approach has contributed to making the Nonino distillery a point of reference in the world of high quality distillation. Today, the Nonino distillery is managed by the fourth generation of the family
