In 2002, on the eve of the harvest, the moment when the Berta family’s address took backthe place-name of Roccanivo (Casalotto di Mombaruzzo). A large structure, that decided toexpand further, built with a careful sense of ist relation to the vine hills, where it peacefully sits,with a façade of a simple house, displaying the family name on the frieze. It is a house belongingas much to grappa as to the Berta family, open and comfortable, decorated with the coats ofarms of all the surrounding regions, where wine is produced with artisanal mastery and stateof-the-art electronic systems.In a warm and cozy atmosphere, the steam-powered stills work slowly and rigorously, totransform the damp and aromatic grape pomace into something strong, but at the same timesoft and subtle.Visitors are sheltered by an antique wooden roof and breathtaking, striking views of thehilly landscape. The Berta Distilleries have become not only an obligatory stop on any itinerarydedicated to food and wine lovers flocking to these hills, but also continue to be the destinationfor so many friends from the world of entertainment and sports, artists, elite restaurateurs,and the great Italian winemaking families; all brought together by ‘that unmistakable aroma offreshly pressed grapes’.Nel 2002, l’indirizzo dei Berta recupera il toponimo di Roccanivo. È così, che l’impresacambia domicilio per spostarsi là vicino, dove inizialmente la prima generazione vi avevadato l’avvio. Nasce una grande struttura costruita con sobrio senso della misura sulle collinedel vino, nelle quali si inserisce serenamente la casa della grappa, sul cui fregio compareil nome della famiglia. Aperta e confortevole è decorata con gli stemmi di tutti i paesicircostanti, in cui le lavorazioni sono guidate con maestria artigianale.In un ambiente caldo e ovattato, gli alambicchi a corrente di vapore lavorano, in modolento e oneroso, per trasformare le vinacce umide e profumate nel dolce ma potente nettaredivino.I visitatori sono accolti da un tetto di legno antico e da alcuni spaccati di paesaggiocollinare tanto suggestivi da mozzare il fiato. Le Distillerie Berta non solo sono diventateuna tappa di indiscussa importanza all’interno di itinerari che sempre maggiormente fannoconfluire tra queste colline gli amanti dell’enogastronomia, ma continuano ad essere lameta di tanti amici provenienti dal mondo dello spettacolo e dello sport, artisti, scrittori,grandissimi ristoratori e nobili famiglie di vignaioli italiani; tutti legati a “quell’aromainconfondibile dell’uva appena pigiata”.

The distillery museum was a little random in terms of some of the items exhibited but it was very interesting. We tasted some grappe, liqueurs and a few different amaretti. It is a little pricey but worth a visit if you like your grappa!

It is an interesting factory, no matter what your interests. Our tour guide talked about the legal and taxation aspects of alcohol production, the raw material handling, uses for their waste products (nothing goes to waste, in the end), and more. Reservations are required. The location was difficult for my usually efficient Italian TomTom GPS to find, so allow extra... More

Distillerie Berta is a very nice facility for the world-renowned grappa maker. We took the facility tour, and the visit was well done, with each stage of the grappa production process described in detail. The highlight of the tour was the underground cellar area, with its LED lights and classical music playing, which some say helps the grappa age (?).... More

This is an exceptional place to visit. Really interesting. The staff were great and accommodating to our small party. The gardens are expansive too so our little one didn't get too bored either.

Be sure to secure an appointment for a tasting. This place attracts tour groups and it can be difficult to get a tasting.

Grappa is an alcoholic beverage, a fragrant, grape-based pomace brandy of Italian origin that contains 35%–60% alcohol by volume. It is made by distilling the skins, pulp, seeds, and stems (i.e., the pomace) left over from winemaking after pressing the grapes. When the pomace comes from the best grapes in the world, the result is expected to be excellent. The... More
