It’s a multi-generational story of one family’s passion for a well-crafted digestivo, making the journey from Northern Italy, via Chicago Illinois, to Melbourne Australia. 

And now, Vic Testolin’s Bolda Grappa is available to all, from the fine-tuning of distilling processes in North Fitzroy backyards to the celebratory tables of Australia.

Vic is an advocate of how Italian tradition can combine with modern methods.


A modern still at the Bolda distillery ensures a product of the finest quality, featuring multi-botanical flavour and a process that makes a light footprint on the environment.

With this, you can know that every bottle of Grappa is as consistent and refined as the drop Vic’s Nonno Vittorio cherished.

La leggenda continua — the legend lives on.
