If you're Italian, you may have memories of eccentric relatives who visited wineries during the harvest season. They came back not with fresh grapes, but with a mushy residue of skins, seeds, pulp and grape stems. Known as 'pomace', (a word used for centuries by English cider makers) it was more often reserved for cattle feed or compost. But skilled Italians have long known how to transform it into one of the world's most seductive spirits - Grappa.

Grappa is produced in many guises, with regional specifity often associated with particular grape varietals, like Nebbiolo or Brachetto. Primitivo, the Puglian grape par excellence, here becomes the distinctive note of Beltion's Grappa di Primitivo. 40% Alc./Vol.
