In the village of Mezzolombardo in Trentino, the de Varda family, noblemen since 1678, owned several land and were grappa and wine producers in the cellars of their Villa. At the beginning of the 1800 great-great-grandfather Romedio Dolzan starts its distilling activity reaching today the 6th generation. Enthusiast of the traditions and teaching of father Giovanni Dolzan, Luigi Dolzan with his wife Clara and their sons Michele and Mauro are the passionate heirs of the past generations bringing entrepreneurial modernity and momentum to the family business.
Art of distillation: the past and present of the Dolzan family
With the secrets of the art of distillation we have also been handed down a considerable quantity of antique tools. Our father, Luigi Dolzan, has made a beautiful selection from an ethnographic point of view, including several pieces which stands out as authentic rarities. The collection is now a nationally important museum located in the most beautiful room of Villa de Varda showcasing 1.600 antique objects used for farming, wine making and distilling and 280 historical documents testifying centuries of ethnographic life of our Family.
