Grappa is a type of Italian brandy that is made from the skins, seeds, and stems of grapes that are left over from winemaking. It is a clear, fiery spirit that is usually drunk as an after-dinner digestif. Grappa was traditionally made in the Veneto region of Italy, but it is now produced all over the country. Grappa has a long history and was first mentioned in documents dating back to the 13th century. It was originally made by peasants as a way to make use of the leftovers from the wine-making process. Grappa was once a humble drink, but it has now become very popular and is a staple of Italian culture.
