Word of the Week: Grappa

Grappa is a dry colorless brandy distilled from fermented grape pomace. Normally, served after dinner as a digestif, Grappa is made by distilling the skins, pulp, seeds, and stems from the leftovers of wine making. 

The term Grappa derives from the Latin word grappapolis or bunch of grapes in English. Next time you enjoy a delicious Italian dinner, consider ordering a caffe corretto, or Grappa mixed with espresso, for your after dinner drinks to help with digestion. Salulti!
