The Francoli family has its heritage traced back to 1875 by Luigi Guglielmo and has specialized in grappa for the subsequent 5 generations. The modern distillery was founded in 1951 by Luigi Francoli and his four younger brothers: Franco, Augusto, Giuseppe and Giovanni. All together, they built a brand that they regard as one of the most illustrious of Italian grappas. Today, they produce a wide range of grappas in Ghemme, Piedmont. Luigi Francoli Grappa is renowned for being one of the smoothest Grappas produced in Italy.
