What a special place! This was an intimate tour given by Marcello to only our family. We learned so much on this tour about their small production of balsamic. We felt it was much nicer and personable that our visit to Acetaia Giusti, which we had done previously. There was also an area just outside for the kids to play with a trampoline. This is a nice family-run business. Special place.

Wonderful and unexpected experience!
We were staying in Bologna and decided to spontaneously stop by for a Balsamic vinegar tasting at the Cavedoni family's factory. It was a very memorable experience! Since we were both not the biggest fans of Balsamico before this, we didn't have many expectations going in, but the tasting proved to be very interesting and we learned a lot about the variations in type, aging and quality of the various Balsamicos (and also why we don't like the ones you usually get at home in the supermarket!). The more aged Balsamicos tasted excellent and we definitely would not have wanted to miss this experience; highly recommended when in the Modena / Bologna area!

Incredibile! By far the best experience during our stay around Modena!

What an absolutely stunning experience!
Marcello Cavedoni is a phantastic host and knows EVERYTHING about Aceto Balsamico! And the history of the Acetaia and family Cavedoni is as impressive as touching. So much love, tradition and highest of quality in the products!
Since our visit I keep telling everyone to go there and I promise: After you´ve been there you will never again buy some cheap Fake-Balasmico of poor quality you get in every supermarket just because it says "Aceto Balasmico Di Modena G.O.P"!
This label says NOTHING about quality! Let Marcello tell you what real Balsamico is all about and taste a few drops of really old Aceto (I don´t reveal the age here but it´s REALLY old!!!) and you´ll become an Aceto-Connoisseur!

Fantastic tour of the Acetaio followed by a delicious tasting
Sep 2020
This tour was extremely special. We learnt so much about the traditional way of producing balsamic vinegar and the customs and heritage that are attached to it. We also learnt a lot about the regulations around the marketing of balsamic vinegar and what you are and aren't allowed to declare on labels when selling the final product. The tour ended with a tasting of all the different aged vinegars, first by themselves and then paired with cheeses and meats from the region, accompanied by lambrusco. I 100% recommend this if you are visiting Modena it was a fantastic experience!

Amazing. Eat. Repeat.

My husband and I found this beautiful location through this very website but not one positive review could have prepared us for this unbelievably amazing experience!

From the very beginning we were treated not just as customers but as honored guests and, dare I say, as friends. From an incredibly interesting and informative tour around the property (vineyard, Barrels storage room and workshop) to a delicious tasting of all differently aged balsamic vinegars accompanied by local cheeses, meats and home made Lambrusco, this place was the highlight of our trip.

Marcello, our loveliest of tour guides, answered all of our questions about his trade and also showered us with excellent tips about the different sights one should experience in this beautiful region. His wife backed us a surprise chocolate cake we couldn’t stop shuffling in, and overall we felt for one afternoon like we’re the honor guests of this traditional family. I deeply recommend this tour and we will definitely be back in the near future.

Once again, our warmest thanks to this wonderful man and his family who opens their doors to anyone interested in their culture, trade and way of life.

Best Thing to Do in Modena
Nov 2019
My wife and I booked a tour as part of a pre-elopement for my wife's best friend and her fiance.

When we arrived, we were greeted like family. We were welcomed into the home, shown about, and taken on a fascinating tour of this family-owned company. The knowledge and passion was obvious and intense, as well as contagious - we all learned so much. Marcello spoke excellent English and was able to field all of our questions.

Afterwards, we treated to a delicious spread of local delights, which far exceeded any expectations. Everything was wonderful, and my vegetarian wife was treated to a salad in lieu of the meat on offer. Of course all the company made samples were wonderful, but the chocolate cake was also fantastic.

My wife is learning Italian, and Marcello and Paulo were happy to chat with her to help her practice and learn a bit more.

Overall, we felt so welcomed and cared for, and left with a real passion for balsamic vinegar. We will only buy it from here in the future. We cannot recommend this enough.

Marcello was so genuine. He welcomed us and treated us like family right from the start. He has a good sense of humor, was very knowledgeable and explained everything about balsamic. He is also knowledgeable about wine making. It was just our group of 6, including a 5, 13, and 16 year old. There was plenty of food to sample and snack on. Definitely the highlight of our day!

Wonderful Experience!!!
Oct 2019
Our hotel in Florence arranged the tour of Acetaia Cavedoni for us and it was well worth the drive from the city! Marcello met us at the gate and took us all around the acetaia, explaining the entire process of making the balsamic vinegar along the way. One can now understand why good balsamic vinegar costs what it does. Once inside the facility, we were served various salamis, mortedella, two different pecorino cheeses, fresh made ricotta, bread, and of course tasting the balsamic vinegar. The balsamic was beyond anything we had ever tasted. Marcello's wife even made a chocolate cake for us! His father Paolo came in to say "hello". This tour was certainly a highlight of our three week trip to Italy! It was wonderful to see this tradition carried on from generation to generation. If you are planning on being in the area, I would highly recommend booking a reservation for a tour of Acetaia Cavedoni.
