Villa de Varda EXPERIENCE
We will start with the history of the Dolzan family, grappa distillers in Trentino as of 6 generations with over 170 years of experience. We will then move in the potstill room (on or off according to the season) where we will explain what is grappa, the traditional Trentino production and our exclusive process, the “de Varda” method which donates a smooth and clean taste to our grappa. We will talk about the importance of the selection of the best grape skins, distillation, dilution and rest.
We will descend in the most antique room of Villa de Varda, where we will visit the ageing room and go trough the most romantic side of grappa: ageing, the types of wood used, the different aging techniques, our standards and exeptions for our top and most representative products. The visit will continue in the museum “Cose di Casa” an impressive selection of tools and equipment collected over the years of activity and used by the Dolzan family. A very valuable collection under the ethnographic and cultural aspect with over 1600 antique pieces used in agriculture, wine making and distillery and over 280 historical documents dating from the 16th to the 20th century.
