"Award-winning summer retreat."

    Nonino's "L'Aperitivo Nonino" BotanicalDrink is the "Aperitif of the Year 2021" at the international "Spirit Award". Out of more than 120 aperitifs and distillates from all over the world, the natural and vegan aperitivo is the first representative from Italy to adorn itself with this special award. And the verdict comes from a competent mouth, because the winner was chosen by the jury of experts at the "International Spirits Award" of the Meininger media group, the most renowned German trade publisher in the wine and spirits industry.

    The history of this aperitif already began in the 1940s. Silvia Milocco Nonino, Antonio's wife and from the third generation of the distiller family, created an authentic, unadulterated "Aperitivo Bianco" back then. In 2018, the grandchildren Cristina, Antonella, Elisabetta and Francesca developed a new interpretation of this recipe and refined it with the pure ÙE grape spirit Monovitigno Fragolino from the Nonino vineyard. The result is "L'Aperitivo Nonino" BotanicalDrink, a wonderfully lively, modern aperitif.

    Of course, you can only taste it yourself, but here you can get a first visual impression of the "Aperitif of the Year 2021" to heighten your anticipation. Have fun!
