  • With my family ... After reading previous reviews ... We booked a tour at this villa. Beautiful experience. The owner is a very kind person and after having illustrated and explained the procedure to derive the true vinegar ... we tasted 5/6 types of vinegar ... and finally ... cream with vinegar. ... something unique! The visit is free. We bought some bottles of vinegar. prices may vary depending on the vintages ... Recommend to visit l vinegar factory ... you will be satisfied

  • The only way to really learn what is a TRADITIONAL balsamic vinegar. (FYI, there is no vinegar in this true product). The gentleman speaks very good french, is passionate, explains and tells it very well. So we learned a lot during this visit. The visit ended with a tasting, very interesting. I recommend you to visit this area.

  • 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.
