Guided Tours

The Magic of the Art of Distillation


Come and discover the places where – more than 120 years ago – the history of the family that revolutionized the world of grappa began.

The visit, which lasts about 2 hours, begins in the heart of the Friulian vineyards. In Ronchi di Percoto, protected by ten hectares of wood and orchard, where the Nonino distilleries are located.

The only distilleries in the world with 66 artisanal batch stills, the Nonino Distilleries will make you experience the century-old art of Nonino 100% artisanal distillation. The continuous search for absolute quality has led the Nonino family to adopt this structure for its own distillery, because it is the only one that allows a strict respect of the freshness and quality of the primary products. The Nonino family personally follows the phases of purchase of the primary products and distills exclusively at the same time as the harvest, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to preserve fragrances and aromas and to avoid any form of storage.


The tour continues with the discovery of the Nonino aging method, natural and without the addition of color additives in the aging cellars under seal (M.I.G).

It will be possible to make an external visit of 3 of the 7 aging cellars under seal (M.I.G) containing 2400 barriques and small casks of Nevers, Limousin, Gresigne, and Ex-Sherry Oak, and in Acacia, Ash, Wild Cherry and Pear wood, which since 1952 accompany in the slow and natural aging (0% color additives) the precious Nonino grappa and distillates.

Once a month, for groups of at least 15 people and with at least two weeks’ notice (excluding Saturdays and Sundays), it will be possible – thanks to the intervention of an officer of the Customs and Monopoly Agency responsible for opening the seal – to enter the aging cellars and taste exclusive Riserva grappa and distillates. The cost is 5 Euro per person, for a total amount of 28 Euro for the complete experience (guided tour + opening of the aging cellars).

Finally it’s time to taste! Once in the educational room of Borgo Nonino, the guided tasting of 5 Nonino products accompanied by sweet and salty finger food from the territory begins.

To part, a final toast in the evocative stills room, to discover the Grappa Evolution with an exclusive Nonino surprise cocktail.

The visits are made in Italian, English and German.
