Le Crode Distillery (BL)
Le Crode Distillery is located in Quero Vas, in a panoramic position between the slopes of the Belluno area. This spot is a cultural operation of great importance, put in place by the current owner to preserve an ancient knowledge, otherwise destined to disappear. Thanks to a distillation system dated back to 1908, Le Crode Distillery produces natural grappa starting from the best native pomace aimed at recovering an ancient local tradition of distillation, lost after the Second World War. An extensive literature on the subject, in fact, teaches how “grappa” was widely used during the war to support the Italian soldiers engaged in war.
The Distillery has a niche top level production of about 15,000 bottles a year. From cabernet to merlot, to raboso grapes, the result is a soft and lovable grappa, a feature that distinguishes local spirits compared, for example, to the more robust cousins from Friuli. This border area between the Dolomites and the Prosecco hills attracts numerous visitors thanks to the natural beauties and the eno-gastronomic excellences of the territory. After this little trip in time we suggest a gourmet stop at the nearby Bon Tajer, where Angelo’s courtesy and their incredible menu will make this experience even more unforgettable.
