Written sources report that as early as 1700 the Levi family from Campodolcino, and more specifically the village of Fraciscio, devoted themselves to the art of distillation. The ancient and legendary craft of the "grapat", who in winter came down from the mountains to select the best pomace to make valuable grappa, was handed down from father to son.
The work of the master distiller, that took care of the fire, fumes and mysterious processes, appeared almost surrounded by a magical halo. It was an art that transformed nature and had all the charm of real magic. But reality was different, it was, above all, a tough and exhausting craft: going from farm to farm with the still on wheels, days and days away from the family, stables and barns as a bed, so much work and so little rest, which only ended with St. Joseph and finally the return home.
Guglielmo Levi, son of the "grapat" Angelo Levi, followed the family tradition and became a skilled distiller. He was not the only one, another 4 of his 9 brothers followed in their father's footsteps: Angelo, Eugenio, Serafino and Egidio. His sister Rosa, in turn, married a Levi distiller.
Now practical of the art of the still, the young Guglielmo moved from his town, place of origin of the most famous "grapat", to Aosta. Here in the heart of the city, in Borgo Sant'Orso, he took over an old distillery, perhaps the oldest in the region. Today, the descendants of the Levi family carry on the work of their ancestors in a modernized distillery, still based on traditional recipes, using the best produces of the surrounding land, and on the maestria of one of the last masters-distillers still practising today.
This respect of the tradition and this will to offer high quality products have permitted to the company to be recognized, winning many prizes in important national and international contests for its grappa and distillates.
