Matteo Da Ponte had already published a book entitled "DISTILLAZIONE" in 1896. In this book, the stills and distillation columns patented by him for the condensation of alcoholic vapours and for the refinement of a natural, but raw and rough distillate with a rough taste were described and illustrated for the first time.
The "Da-Ponte" process has the advantage of capturing and preserving the most important aromatic components of the grape aroma, i.e. the most delicate and volatile, in the distillate. This precise separation of the pre- and post-distillation phases results in the best that nature has to offer: naturalness, purity and gustatory finesse. For over thirty years Andrea da Ponte has been distilling with renewable energy sources and in harmony with nature.
