  • This is the best Acetaia in the world!! Come and visit Davide he will show you his beautiful vinegar loft and will tech you all the secrets about the gorgeous Traditional balsamic vinegar of Modena. Here you will find any type of this marvelous black gold. Bottles of over 100 years old, extra old balsamic vinegar of over 25 years old, "affinato" type of more than 14 years old and as well a delicious balsamic condiment approximately 6 years old. But not only! They have a tasty balsamic vinegar gelly, white aged vinegar and a fantastic local walnut liquor. If you pass by Modena you must come to visit Acetaia Villa San Donnino!
  • Amazing tour, love the staff, location, and the product. Beautiful old farm and setting, great story behind it all... feels quintessentially artisan and Italian. And the tour & talk was so interesting, I never would have imagined all that goes into their product (literally decades of care), the certified "Balsamic Vinegar of Modena" and others.
  • Francesca was the delightful guide of this informative and fun tour. The tour is free of charge and includes a tasting! There is a shop but no pressure to purchase!
  • Made a brief ad-hoc stop at this wonderful place after golf. The third generation owner Davide was most friendly and kind to us. Highly recommended for any “foodie” to come and understand the buy the prized balsamic vinegar !! Thank you Davide
  • Highlights of our day in Modena. The owner was beyond kind and informative. The products they produce are amazingly tasty and affordable now knowing the process....
