Founded in 1867, Contratto was the first winery in Italy to make vintage ‘Metodo Classico’ sparkling wine and in the 1920’s and 1930’s, it was the Contratto bubbles that were requested by the Vatican and the royal houses of Europe.
Now owned by family-run business, La Spinetta, they have reintroduced Contratto to the world, whilst continuing to preserve and uphold its 150-year-old traditions and top quality.
“The original recipe from the early 19th century for Contratto Vermouth is based on a combination of white wine fortified with Italian brandy and more than 30 delicately infused premium natural herbs, spices, roots and seeds. This traditional process is again used to create a so-phisticated elixir and a complex and well-balanced boutique apertif that will make any Vermouth based cocktail an exceptional experience”.
The aromatic blend of herbs and spices gently infuses the wine to create a unique bouquet and taste, delicious serve chilled on its own with a twist of lemon, it is the perfect Vermouth for classic and contemporary mixology.
