27th November 1984: Benito and Giannola Nonino created the Grape Spirit ÙE® by distilling the skin, pulp and grape juice in a single operation. Ministerial Authorization for the production of Grape Spirit (D.M. 20.10.84) was granted following a specific request by the Noninos. The success of this distillate over the years has been such that it has persuaded Italian and foreign distillers to follow the Nonino model.
