About
In 2002, on the eve of the harvest, the moment when the Berta family’s address took backthe place-name of Roccanivo (Casalotto di Mombaruzzo). A large structure, that decided toexpand further, built with a careful sense of ist relation to the vine hills, where it peacefully sits,with a façade of a simple house, displaying the family name on the frieze. It is a house belongingas much to grappa as to the Berta family, open and comfortable, decorated with the coats ofarms of all the surrounding regions, where wine is produced with artisanal mastery and stateof-the-art electronic systems.In a warm and cozy atmosphere, the steam-powered stills work slowly and rigorously, totransform the damp and aromatic grape pomace into something strong, but at the same timesoft and subtle.Visitors are sheltered by an antique wooden roof and breathtaking, striking views of thehilly landscape. The Berta Distilleries have become not only an obligatory stop on any itinerarydedicated to food and wine lovers flocking to these hills, but also continue to be the destinationfor so many friends from the world of entertainment and sports, artists, elite restaurateurs,and the great Italian winemaking families; all brought together by ‘that unmistakable aroma offreshly pressed grapes’.Nel 2002, l’indirizzo dei Berta recupera il toponimo di Roccanivo. È così, che l’impresacambia domicilio per spostarsi là vicino, dove inizialmente la prima generazione vi avevadato l’avvio. Nasce una grande struttura costruita con sobrio senso della misura sulle collinedel vino, nelle quali si inserisce serenamente la casa della grappa, sul cui fregio compareil nome della famiglia. Aperta e confortevole è decorata con gli stemmi di tutti i paesicircostanti, in cui le lavorazioni sono guidate con maestria artigianale.In un ambiente caldo e ovattato, gli alambicchi a corrente di vapore lavorano, in modolento e oneroso, per trasformare le vinacce umide e profumate nel dolce ma potente nettaredivino.I visitatori sono accolti da un tetto di legno antico e da alcuni spaccati di paesaggiocollinare tanto suggestivi da mozzare il fiato. Le Distillerie Berta non solo sono diventateuna tappa di indiscussa importanza all’interno di itinerari che sempre maggiormente fannoconfluire tra queste colline gli amanti dell’enogastronomia, ma continuano ad essere lameta di tanti amici provenienti dal mondo dello spettacolo e dello sport, artisti, scrittori,grandissimi ristoratori e nobili famiglie di vignaioli italiani; tutti legati a “quell’aromainconfondibile dell’uva appena pigiata”.

A very nice distillerie with excellent Grappa
Jun 2021
We were staying at the Villa Prato and of course, we had to visit
the Destillerie. We were welcomed from a very friendly lady. She showed us around and it was more than impressive to see
everything. Afterwards we got to taste the different Grappas and of course, we had to buy some bottles.
Please be aware that the bags in the shop are not meant to carry more than one bottle. We bought several items in the shop and all our paper bags broke through while walking to the car. Thank god, all the bottles were still ok.

Very disapointment
Nov 2019 • Friends
We came 4 of us to visit Berta. The weather was very bad so nobody in the distillery. We could not see anything and the girl was quite rude when we have asked to visit the cellar. No visit without notification!! So we did not see anything and we have lost 2 hours in travelling. What a lost day and disapointment😩

This grappa house sure is something to behold. Be sure to visit Distelleria Berta, because the premises and surroundings are absolutely breathtaking and you'll learn a lot about the history of the house Berta and the distilling process. Did you know that classical music is considered to be beneficial for the maturing process of the grappa? Me neither, but at distelleria Berta they have perfected every aspect of the grappa production process, so they play classical music in their fabulous cellars.

A visit will leave you in awe and yes, the grappa is great. Though I would have preferred the lovely waitresses to be a bit more generous when pouring the grappa in our tasting glasses.

Fantastic Tour and Tasting
Jun 2019 • Solo
Distillerie Berta is situated in Piedmonte on the edge of the small village of Mombaruzzo. The main entrance building is built in the traditional Piedmonte style and houses a shop as well as a small museum where one can view the old bottles, stills and vehicles which were traditionally used in grappa making.

The tour is comprehensive; explaining the grappa making process and showing the storage vaults and still used during the distillation process. After this, there was the opportunity to try a number of grappas and other distillates.

Our tour guide was professional, knowledgable and enthusiastic about everything grappa related.

Definitely worth a visit

A great place to learn about and taste some premium grappa. The sales of amaretti biscuits are a bonus. Watch out for your buses!

I visited only museum (because I didn't prenote a visit before) and it was very interesting.
I appreciated "amaretti".

Grappa Heaven
Jun 2017 • Couples
Stop by Distillerie Berta if you are nearby. Besides offering a cool respite on a hot day, the tour is interesting and informative. The guide takes you through the entire process and the resulting grappa is wonderful. The grappa ages in underground caves with classical music playing in the background and a shifting light show. Apparently, classical music makes better grappa but the lights are for entertainment. There is a small museum with vintage grappas and cars(?)

Visit and tasting not to be missed
Jun 2017 • Couples
When you are in the area, take your time and visit this distillery. The guide we had explained in details the process to make the best grappa.

Afterwards you have the possibility to taste, and believe it or not but you can try what you want !

Dear Giulia
you have made our day! Not only with your wonderful guidance but also with the reservation for Villa Prato. It was the best idea to start our visit to Piemonte at Distillerie Berta and Villa Prato. Thank you very much.
The distillerie is so clean, so pitturesque and so efficient. We definitely enjoyed our stay and will come back again soon.
