Owner Vittorio Capovilla has chosen to distil his Grappa using small stills that he has especially built for him by a German artisan. He has also chosen to use an artisanal distillation method for his products, via the very high quality bain-marie method, which employs a discontinuous distilling cycle. This means that at the end of every boiling cycle of the marc or pomace, the cycle must be interrupted and the pot emptied and refilled with other new marc or pomace. The discontinuous cycle still can be of three types (direct fire, bain marie and flowing steam) depending on the manner by which the pomace or marc is warmed up, and the bain marie method, though slow and labour-intensive, is particulary famous for extracting aromas and flavours that are highly refined and intense.
