On warm summer evenings, when the pergola cast long shadows, the villagers liked to meet in the Grotto Monti for a Boccalino or a sparkling Gazosa. The local origin of the products was always accompanied by short distribution channels. The empties have always been valuable. Swing-top bottles were reused almost endlessly and the beverage production was virtually waste-free. A simple model with low consumption of resources, which his great-grandson Roberto has now rediscovered in times of climate change under the term of circular economy. The low-price bottle deposit promotes this.
In Gazosa Monti the spirit of Bartolomeo Monti (1863-1948), mayor, winemaker, wine merchant and operator of the legendary Grotto Monti in Magliaso TI, lives on. Consistently he only served what the surrounding farms, fields and vineyards could provide. And his Gazosa: fresh spring water, fruity aromas, sugar – that’s it! With this he filled even at that time the unmistakable glass bottles with a set of wires, added a dash of carbon dioxide and the colourful lemonade was ready.
Gazosa Monti, lemonade that sounds and tastes like holidays, open air swimming pool and endless summer nights. It has long been part of Switzerland’s culinary heritage. Like no other soft drink, Gazosa stands for pure joie de vivre. Enjoy it ice-cold!
