  • We were guests of the vinegar factory an afternoon midweek and was not at all complicated to get a date for the visit. The owner was very friendly, polite and helpful to accommodate our needs. On arrival we were greeted with warmth (although there was already a group visiting). The place is cozy, neat and clean. Mr. David (the proprietor) explained in great detail all when it concerns the processing of traditional balsamic vinegar responding patiently to our questions. It was a teaching moment. At the end of the visit there was offered a taste of the products. The thing that surprised us was the passion and humility that David can convey a testament to the fact that time passes but manners are resisting. To help him there is also francesca who speaks great English! there is much more to say ... try it!

  • 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.
