Place of origin of great vines, ours is a territory with some of the most prestigious and renowned DOC areas, famous all over the world. Our raw materials come mainly from the DOC areas of Collio, Colli Orientali and Grave del Friuli. The history of the Bepi Tosolini Distillery began in 1943, when the Friulian Bepi Tosolini, born in 1918, passionate connoisseur of his land and his costumes, lit supporter of its region and its products, decides to create a different grappa, transforming a simple, humble and very often rustic and rough distillate into a product intended for a refined and demanding public. First the eldest son Giovanni, and today his grandchildren Giuseppe, Bruno and Lisa, work together in the company created by the patriarch following in his footsteps and growing more and more the dream of a large family. Thus, for three generations, the rhythms and rules of production, aging and aging have remained the same, supporting the evolution of the products and the new proposals of the company.
In 1973 the great distillery of Povoletto was born, in which the steam stills with manual operation stand out, to which are added new bain-marie stills. In the world of spirits it has always been recognized the value that can only express the traditional stills, which keep intact the aromas and aromas obtaining a pure and precious distillate. The Bepi Tosolini Distillery today distills only during the harvest period and boasts eight traditional steam boilers with a column, two bain-marie stills and the original Charante alembic for the production of the Most.
After distillation, grappa needs to rest for many months to recompose its structure and its aromas and reach the optimal level of ripeness. Aging takes place in barrels of ash or oak for a period ranging from 12 months to 20 years and more, depending on the type of grappa. Sometimes a few months are carried out in small oak-cherry-plum-chestnut oak barrels to give different nuances of taste to the distillate. It is a fundamental and delicate process that takes place under permanent surveillance of the Customs and Monopolies Agency, which affixes its seals to our cellars to certify the respect of aging times.
