Distilleria Castelli

  • Langhe, Piedmont, Italy

Established in 1967, Castelli is a family-owned and operated, small-production distillery in Piedmont; it is now run by the second generation, Sergio.

Grappa is distilled from the skins, pulp, seeds, and stems (i.e., the pomace) left over from winemaking after pressing the grapes— the fresher the better— and all of their pomace is sourced locally from wineries with whom they have long-term relationships. Many of their producers farm their vines organically. The pomace is transported to the distillery in small containers and aged for in an oxygen-free environment; this special aging process helps to deepen the flavor and structure of the finished grappa. When the pomace is ready, it is distilled and aged a minimum of 4 years in stainless steel tanks.

These grappas are beautiful expressions of the grapes and vineyards of the Langhe and we are proud to welcome them to our portfolio.
