Alla saluti di Toni!

Old Bike Australasia - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR -

I was in­ter­ested to see your story on the Poli Airone Rossi Aper­i­tivo drink in the OBA 78. Whilst on hol­i­days in Italy in 2017 I vis­ited the Poli Dis­tillery in Schi­avon as they were hav­ing an open day with free tours of the dis­tillery and on-site mu­seum ded­i­cated to the pro­duc­tion of Grappa. The orig­i­nal Moto Guzzi Airone bike fea­tured on the la­bel and rid­den by Toni Poli is still owned by the fam­ily and is on dis­play in the mu­seum, al­beit sus­pended on chains and hang­ing in a stair­well. I have at­tached some pho­tos (above & right) of the bike I took dur­ing my visit. The dis­tillery is also not quite near Verona, but is just down the road from Bre­ganze and Zane where Laver­das were made, and not far from Asolo where Alpines­tars orig­i­nated. A great part of Italy to visit, not too far from Venice.
