About
Welcome to the Museum of the most Italian of spirits: Grappa. Not far from Venice, at the foot of Monte Grappa, lies the enchanting town of Bassano del Grappa, the "capital" of the very Italian distillate: Grappa. In the heart of the town, opposite the historic Ponte Vecchio, in the old "Palazzo delle Teste", is the Poli Grappa Museum. The Poli Grappa Museum, the result of a long and passionate research, the Museum was created by the Poli Family in appreciation of Grappa. The Museum consists of five suggestive rooms and visits are self-guided.

We visited the museum between the must visit Alpini war museum (really a must visit), and the Hemingway museum... Poli provides a efficient experience that helps visitors understand the relevance of the product in the local history of Bassano.

As a business man, I enjoyed learning family values are still live and kicking in everything Poli markets and produces... Huge value attributed to quality, heritage and vision.

The product itself is exceptional, Poli brand stands shoulders above its nearest rival...

History includes a tasting of some interesting samples of Grappa
Oct 2019
Located at one end of the famous wooden Bassano bridge , the store front is also a museum that displays the history of Grappa production in this part of the Veneto region of Italy . After getting educated and having an opportunity to try the various products on hand you can select your purchases . A treat you will not want to miss . Cheers

Poli Museum/Grappa shop is outstanding
Oct 2019
The self-guided tour of grappa making is very well done. Excellent graphics, descriptions (English & Italian) , old equipment on display. A short video gives clear explanation of making grappa. The store has wide variety of different types & sizes of grappa for sale. And a few T shirts!

We went here after trying to make a tour reservation at Nardini grappa shop very near by & were treated poorly by the staff. They never answered by email request 3 weeks earlier, and wouldn't consider a tour when I asked in person. It seemed they did not like the fact that I spoke little Italian. Once the English came out of my mouth, the smile went off their faces. Poli is much better organized - Anybody, anytime can walk in in & take all of the tour or part of it. No expectations. Helpful staff too.

One Can Learn Something and Buy Something Here
Apr 2019 • Couples
When it comes to a land tour, visiting a "museum" like this is ok, as one can learn something about the history and methods of grappa making here and also get a taste of it and buy something for souvenir. When one returns home, chances are the bottles go into the cupboard you remain there as souvenir. But this is a fine exhibit and the numerous small bottles in the shop are quite interesting.

Small museum and not easily accessible
Apr 2019 • Couples
This is a small museum and not easy to negotiate for the less able. There are steps into the building and within it. There is one toilet which isn’t marked as such, and is locked but staff have a key. The visit is self guided due to the small size of the museum. There is a video loop playing in different languages telling the story of the production process of grappa and an opportunity to taste or purchase the spirit. The leaflet says the place is suitable for smaller groups of up to fifty people - for larger groups they suggest the visit to the distillery (elsewhere) is better. We were in a coach party of thirty-six and this meant the small museum seemed quite cramped. We might have got more out of the visit had we been the only people there.

Dear Mr. Derekh, many thanks for your message. We strive to satisfy at best every visitors’ need inside the limited premises of the museum, which may at times be rather busy, especially during the weekends. The Poli Grappa Museum is based in an ancient palace dated 1400’s, whose architectural structure has steps and narrow passages. This surely makes the visit suggestive, but not as easy for less able ones. As indicated, we always suggest to larger groups di visit instead the Museum in Schiavon, where the building is larger and the spaces are more comfortable; here it is also possible to visit the Distillery and the whole production plant. We wish you a nice day

The history of grappa from its beginning in the study of alchemy to present day. Old copper stills and other fun facts highlight the self-guided tour.

This is a self-guided tour of the facility. You can read about the history and process of producing grappa. At the end you can taste the varieties offered and purchase grappa if you want. Nice little museum.
