Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Piedmont / Province of Alessandria / Silvano d'Orba / Distilleria Gualco
Founded in 1870, Distilleria Gualco has been the property of the same family for generations. When you stop by this historic grappa factory, you'll be able to learn about the traditional production process, taste the product, and pick up a bottle or two at the onsite shop. Look for flavored grappas and grappa-based liqueurs, which offer a full-bodied sweet taste without being too sugary. Many of the distillery's recipes for making these products were developed by Bartolomeo Gualco, a legendary grappa master. You'll need to make prior arrangements for tasting sessions and guided tours, but you can drop into the shop any day of the week, including Saturday and Sunday.

Amazing and very old distillery, the owner showed us the entire process and was extremely interesting. The pressed grapes smell amazing before the process and come out steaming
Renowned historical grapperia, excellence of Piedmont and the pride of six generations of artisanal production !! I was advised to purchase a grappa with meticulous attention, being a layman on the subject! I definitely recommend a visit to grappa lovers to taste the different products of this ancient house which with love and passion represents a pride of our territory !!!
