  • What an intimate, wonderful visit. We were honored to be given a tour by the owner Davide himself and learn about the art of traditional balsamic vinegar making. The tour ended with a delicious tasting, including balsamic on ice cream! I emailed to reserve a tour a few weeks in advance. It’s an easy, €20 taxi ride from Modena.
  • Nice story with tour. Wonderful basalmic and other products. Worth a visit
  • We enjoyed learning about the balsamic vinegar process and tasting their products. Worth the visit!
  • What an amazing experience! Just a short bus-ride outside Modena lies this cozy Acetaia, where Davide will take great care of you, showing the process of making real traditional Balsamic. We also got to taste his products and ended up bringing some home. Davide is super knowledgeable, experienced and passionate which shines through throughout! Would recommend going any day and hope to be back some time!
  • Very good tour the girl surely knew what she was talking about. She speaks very good English en gave a good tour. The taste of real balsamico is amazing. If you are in the neighbourhood just pass by.
