Carpenito's Distillery was born in 1998 when Mr. Mario Carpenito starts his activity in wine growing mixed cultures in order to produce distilling process and grappa production. The distillation plant is located in Tufo (Av). Thanks to its agricultural and wine business is known as the "Town of DOCG Greco di Tufo wine".
The activity is a made by hand and is part of the weaving factory system aiming at increase wine and food resources in the regional area. So, Carpenito Distillery represents the first initiative in Partenio area aiming at the working of valuable fresh marc exclusively produced in the areas of DOCG Greco, Fiano, Aglianico and Falanghina. By this working excellent single-varietal grappa are obtained, all characterized by the typical aroma and flavor of the fine grapes used.
The name "grape marc" or "grape marc spirit" may be replaced by the designation "grappa" solely for the spirit drink produced in Italy.
Tufa caves and sulfur mines: volcanic rocks that are present in the whole underground of the town of Tufo, the real richness of this peace of land in Irpinia.
