  • We were staying in Tuscany and decided to take a day trip to Modena. Upon researching (the night before) small but well respected Balsamic Vinegar produces in the Modena area, I came across a listing ...  more »
  • Via tripadvisor and not regret the lady did the explanation of traditional balsamic in (almost) perfect English she knew also on all questions to answer After tasting, definitely worth a taste difference between the different types of too bad we could not see the bottling. Absolutely worth a visit!! After the tour, you can also buy the Balsamic and there is there in all price classes. Tour is free by the way.

  • Great place to learn the difference between balsamic vinegar of Modena traditional Balsamic and acetate. Nice ride in place of splendid nature and leaving more cultured than entered. Know that a traditional Modena balsamic acetate can take 24 years to get to your table and can be consumed in many ways is sensational.

  • Very informative tour with Francesca. It is worth the stop. I didn't know there was so much to know about balsamic.
  • Great tour and knowledgeable staff. They offer an array of choices all made in house.
  • Big thanks to Davide for the private tour of his operation. Very informative and top notch product (had to buy ALL of it!) If in Modena, this is a must!
  • Informative and interesting place in stunning surroundings. Done as part of a tour but if driving definitely stop in if you can. Lots to learn and taste.
  • 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!
