Awards success for Grappa Ampolle

Grappa Ampolle has achieved recognition at not one but TWO prestigious international contests!

We are delighted to announce that the Franciacorta Riserva and Franciacorta Chardonnay Riserva variants of our Grappa Ampolle range, which joined Stock Spirits Group’s portfolio through the recent acquisition of Distilleria Franciacorta, have received top scores at two international contests: The World Drink Awards and the Superior Taste Awards.

The World Drinks Awards are a global awards recognising spirit drinks and the many styles within these categories. There are two separate strands to the awards – one for taste and the other for design excellence. At the World Drink Awards 2020, Borgo Antico San Vitale Franciacorta Grappa Chardonnay Riserva achieved a Gold award for taste in the Aged Grappa category and a Silver award for label design.  Borgo Antico San Vitale Grappa Franciacorta Riserva received a Silver award for taste in the Aged Grappa category and a Bronze award for presentation.  The Borgo Antico San Vitale range was also recognised, achieving a Bronze award in the Range Design category.

The product range also received the top accolade at the Superior Taste Awards 2020, gaining a 3 star award.  Since 2005, the Taste Institute has evaluated more than 15,000 food and drink products from around the world.  Using a jury of prestigious Chefs and Sommeliers and a strict tasting methodology, a Superior Taste Award has become one of the most renowned independent certifications worldwide. Only exceptional products scored above 90% are awarded a 3 star award, so this is a fantastic achievement for our Grappa Ampolle range.

These awards reinforce our product excellence, where our commitment to quality continues to deliver outstanding, best-in-class products.
