  • Davide is very friendly and passionate about TRADITIONAL balsamic vinegar, which has been his family business for generations. Interesting free tour. If you think you know balsamic vinegar, think again until you're done this tour. Some authentic vinegars available for purchase afterwards, but no pressure at all. All in all a must visit!
  • The tour and tasting was definitely worth the trip from Balogna. The staff was very accommodating and got to try balsamic vinegars agreed up to 25 years. The tour was free but the balsamic vinegar was worth buying.
  • wonderful place manufactiuring real Modena Balsamic viniger with nice people whom took us around and are in no hurry with the explanation (English) and tasting. Well done
  • Nice explanations, enjoyable tasting. Wish we could see the actual manufacturing process. The products from the store are fantastic.
  • Authentic Balsamic Vineyard run by a small family with many years of tradition behind itself. Guided tours are available as well as to buy some balsamico for yourself ranging from 10 to 100 years.
