Francoli Grappa

At the Relais et Chateaux Villa Crespi, we can organize private visits for small groups to Casa Francoli in Ghemme. Our guests will have the chance of getting to know all about the Distillery which produces prestigious grappas as well as their winery, Torraccia del Piantavigna.

Grappa, a priceless nectar and fruit of precious vines wherein the Novara area is rich and bounteous.

A tradition originating from more than 100 years ago, when the passion for the land, contemplation of the vines and careful attention paid to the passage through the alembic is transformed into grappa.

A place where the final product is only just a small step of that which is the reflection of those who have worked to make this grappa synonymous with excellence and Italian craftsmanship.


Spot dedicated to tasting and buying grappas and wines for more than 20 years, it’s just a few steps from Monte Rosa, Lake Orta and Lake Maggiore.


Inside you’ll be welcomed by pleasant and modern surroundings, where you can leisurely enjoy an excellent glass of grappa or wine in peace.
