This was our second time visiting this amazing small producer of traditional balsamic vinegar. Davide is such an interesting host and the products are fantastic and competitively priced. Thank you again for such a great experience!

I never knew there was so much to learn about balsamic vinegar- not just any balsamic vinegar but Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena! Davide was so prompt in answering my email inquiry and very accommodating for the time of our visit. He turned us over to Francesa for explanations in English. What a knowledgable young woman! The tour was private... More

I went to the website: http://www.balsamico.it/ Chose the English version http://www.balsamico.it/gb/index.htm Hovered over "Tours" then clicked on "Guided Tours" Filled out the form then clicked "Send" I believe I did that on a Friday and received an e-mail response by Monday. I was given contact information for Villa San Donnino and Davide was copied on that e-mail. I immediately e-mailed... More

Visit this beautiful Villa outside of Modena. They produce, among other things, balsamic vinegar. The process of making balsamic vinegar is most interesting and very surprising....try them all...quite a difference between them! We were fortunate enough to be given a small tour insidie the actual villa...beautiful!

My daughter and I had an incredible private tour with the owner in May 2015. This is my second time to visit. This is a wonderful experience. The best balsamic vinegar in Italy! You simply must try and buy it.

If you're considering visiting the villa, I highly recommend that you do. First of all, having the opportunity to try balsamic vinegar tradizionale is a very special thing. Unless you're already familiar with it, it will taste unlike anything you've ever experienced. It has a purity and flavor which is revelatory, particularly for food lovers, and it can honestly transform... More

If you have the time, please go and visit this place. The manufactory is very interesting and the tasting is also something special. A very different flavor than one knows from the supermarkets balsamic vinegar, which has pretty much nothing to do with this traditional one, but they will tell you more about that. I really liked the Nero vinegar,... More

I have been here several times with friends via a tour package. However you can tour this independently. This was the tour that sold me on the real Balsamic Vinegar and I've never looked back.

It is a trick to find but well worth the effort. The lovely guide Francesca took us to the attic to experience the wonderful fragrance that fills the air from hundreds of ancient barrels of aging balsamic vinegar. This delicious liquid is made from either Trebbiano or Lambrusco grapes that are crushed and simmered for 24 hours to reduce the... More
