Grappa is made by distilling skins, pulp, and seeds leftover from winemaking after pressing the grapes.  The process of distillation is made possible by the fact that the boiling point of alcohol is lower than that of water.  This means that if a mixture of water and alcohol is heated to the boil, more of the alcohol than the water will end up in the initial vapor.  The vapor can be cooled and condensed into a liquid.
