Production of unique monovarietal grappas in the heart of the home of the Prosecco Beniamino Maschio defined himself as a “lover of monovarietal grappa”.

For several years now, the company has been run by Beniamino's children, Alessandro and Flavia: Alessandro – himself a father of five – is one of the most active and innovative distillers in his home region of Veneto, where distilleries abound.

As president of Istituto Grappa Veneta, Alessandro has worked on the production of monovarietal grappa made from grapes such as Cabernet, Chardonnay, Manzoni bianco, Moscato, Pinot Grigio, Prosecco or Sauvignon, while also creating gemstones such as the grappas produced in Amarone, Prosecco and Cartizze (aged for about 3 months in small barrels of sweet cherry) and Brenté, a blend of Pinot and Prosecco grappas (aged 3 to 9 years in oak barrels).
