In the picturesque setting of the Sala della Lupa in Montecitorio Palace, the birthplace of the Italian Republic, Italy’s 100 Finest were awarded and among them was Distillerie Bonollo Umberto of Padua (Padova), with over 100 years of experience in perfecting the art of distillation.
Italy’s 100 Finest (companies, organizations, institutions, associations, people, etc.) selected for the 2016 edition of the prize illustrate talent, commitment and Italian creativity. They became part of the book “Italy’s 100 Finest,” which celebrates high standards for beauty, product quality and, more generally, of fine living. They exemplify the values of tradition, history, innovation, creativity and boldness that characterize the Italian spirit of excellence.
Among these stands the name of Distillerie Bonollo Umberto of Padua, chosen to exclusively represent the excellence of grappa production, a benchmark of food and wine culture. The values acknowledged in Bonollo and the other winners are excellence, pragmatism and soundness with a constant eye towards ingenuity, but in keeping with the traditions that serve as the foundation of Italian pride.
Soundness and substance have never fluctuated as four generations of the Bonollo family have alternated at the helm of Distillerie Bonollo Umberto of Padua. Grappa is a product that emanates from the great depth characterized by activites related to the land. It is the result of the raw materials offered by nature which, year after year, evolve with more and different characteristics, prompting the wise intervention of master distillers who produce great pleasures from this aromatic plentitude.
From the vinacce, a solid and concrete raw material, the result of vinification, through the process of distillation extracts bouquets of aromas and fragrance that gives each grappa a distinctive personality. Generation after generation, the Bonollo family has worked to produce innovative and superior products in their passionate quest to achieve excellence and to set the higest standard possible for quality in the industry.
