The first substantive international text that takes on the quintessential beverage of the Italian culture. Grappa: Italy Bottled is two books in one. The first is a comprehensive Grappa course from grape growing to tasting including facts on Grappa and distillation that have not been published before. The second half is a travel story that takes you on a trip through the Grappa regions of Italy, concluding with a list of distilleries in the Grappa regions of Italy.
