We visited this place as one of our must see balsamic tasting in Modena. This is a short walk from the big square. We were not disappointed and just walked in.the staff were friendly and attentive and gave us an insight into local producers of Balsamic. Ideally we would like to have been told the cost of our visit and the tasting before they started telling * us about the products €15 pp. however we enjoyed our couple of hours and were allowed to taste 4 vinegars which were all delicious. Purchase of any product then qualifies for the talk and taste charge to be refunded. On average a 100 ml bottle of Balsamic is €60 so we got one bottle and had our entry discounted. Worth a visit and easily found other places were closed so we have nothing to compare our experience with.

We went here for a balsamic wine tasting. The Consorteria only sells vinegar from 20 producer families who follow a strict protocol to make their product. And the Consorteria only sells 2 products from each family, a 12+ year old vinegar and a 25+ year old vinegar. We tried 5 different vinegars with the help of an extremely knowledgeable young woman who explained the different families, how the Consorteria operates, and how vinegars are regulated in Italy. Very, very interesting. We left buying her last 3 bottles of 25+ year old vinegars from the Roberto family. Can’t wait to get home and taste a few drops on some vanilla ice cream!

What a great store! We learned all about traditional balsamico. We got to try many different kinds and got the best advice and information to pick the best one for us. You could feel that she was so passionate and happy to tell us all about it. Great experience and a bottle to remember it by. Thank you!

It was a very nice experience, the tasting was so nicely explained to us. The lady was very caring and we enjoyed every moment of it. I can highly recommend it if you are looking for the best vinegar ever and an unforgetable experience. We bought ours after tasting and we will for sure visit again. They also ship them all over europe.

Having seen the store on 'Somebody Feed Phil' we decided to treat ourselves to balsamico since we were in the area. First time we went in was last Tuesday and we were assisted by Pier, who was very helpful in explaining the process and having us do a taste test. Then today (Friday) we went in again to buy another bottle as a gift and were assisted by Cecilia. We told her this was our second visit and with her bubbly personality she happily assisted us through a more compact tasting to find a bottle we liked.

So why only 4 stars? We looked up the first purchase on the producer's website Tuesday evening and discovered we overpaid. When mentioned today we were told that only today the prices were discounted but it did not seem believable. In conclusion, concerning the overall experience we remain satisfied, yet we still left Modena with a prolonged sour taste in our mouths.

Hello Mike, I am the store manager and I would like to express my disappointment for what happened today. Both of my assistants made a mistake, and I would like to give you a bottle of Traditional Balsamic Vinegar as a gift to make amend for it. Please let me know if you are still in the area and able to pick it up at the shop, or send your full address at laconsorteria1966@gmail.com for us to ship the bottle to your house. Please accept my apology and my assurance than something similar will never happen again. Regards. Rossella

Our visit here was a great experience: I always wanted to have some real balsamic vinegar, but didn't really know what to look for: what are the different tastes, what's the difference between 12 and 25 years. It's expensive stuff so good to try first. And this lovely shop gives the perfect opportunity and helped us find a very special balsamico to take home and enjoy.

Christina speaks wonderful English and gave 4 of us a marvelous experience, explaining everything about the process and answering questions. Very knowledgeable. We also were able to taste 7-8 or so different vinegars, each subtlety different and could patiently talk about the flavors of each one with her. Two other groups came in while we were there, one scheduled for later and another just waited patiently as we were wrapping up. If you buy a vinegar, then the 'tour' is free; otherwise I believe they ask you to pay 5 euros each at the end, not sure. We bought a bottle and she explained how to get it home safely in our carry on luggage. Would be worth it no matter what--it was exactly the experience we were looking for. right downtown near the duomo and easy to find. We did not have a reservation but you could make one.

Glad I found this place on line while looking for high quality traditional balsamic vinegar to bring back. Our host spoke excellent english, and provided an interesting presentation of the methods used in production of traditional vinegars, tasting of a nice assortment with suggestions of food pairings for different varieties. Tasting was 10euros which was refunded with a purchase. Although somewhat expensive, we are very happy with what we purchased. One, with final aging in cherry-wood cost 65 euro, and the vecchio (at least 25 years old) cost 90 euro. We took advantage of their shipping option with FedEx for 50 euro. They did a fantastic job packing everything for shipment, and it arrived in only 2 days without anything breaking (I wasn't sure how the glass pipettes for serving it by drop would fare, but they were fine). If you are continuing your travels, make sure that they delay the shipment so it arrives after you do as FedEx will only hold it for 5 days before returning it to Italy if unclaimed! I also obtained a pdf file they have so I can order more from the US to give as gifts.

This shop offers super friendly staff and owners which happily show you all the different varieties of balsamic vinegar as well as telling you how it’s produced and also letting you taste the different kinds and explaining what you should be tasting and which dishes the different kinds suits best.

This shop is a must visit while in modena and be sure to bring home at least one bottle of authentic traditional balsamic vinegar from this shop!
