Owner description: 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”.
