After 12 years in the service of a wealthy family in Rome, like many other members of poor families, Sabina returned home to her brother Attilio, who had always worked as a farmer. Sabina returned, however, with the firm intention of changing her life – she wanted to learn the art of distilling and make a good grappa from the marc, which the winegrowers evaporated in the yards as waste products. Together with a local boiler maker, the first piston was built and the first grappa was fired in 1949. Marzadro-Grappa was the first grappa to bear the name of a family and the first distillery to have the courage to produce grappa from a single grape variety. The good quality and the courage to innovate according to old craftsmanship are still followed today in the 3rd generation and so grappas with awards are produced again and again.
