About
Antica Acetaia Villa Bianca is one of the oldest acetaia in Modena. It is located in an privileged area for the production of Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena. It gives you the chance to plunge back into the past. In the old mansion, built in 1600, the passion of seven generation vinegar makers is jealously preserved in the family’s precious barrels.

We spent a few hours at our “extravecchio” tasting with Irene and Claudio and cannot praise the experience highly enough. The house, a 17th century marvel, is set among the grapevines, and the love and pride Irene and Claudio feel for their product (which their family has been making for generations) was evident as we walked the grounds, went up into the attic where the vinegar was aging, and tasted it straight from the barrels so we could appreciate how it changes as it matures. Later we had delicious home-cooked bread and squash to sample with the 12+ and 25+ year vinegars (both incredible), as well as 24+ month aged parmigiano and vanilla gelato. It was a wonderful afternoon and we feel lucky we were able to have the experience.

Our entire family loved this experience. Emilio was a wonderful host, showing my husband, me, and our two kids (ages 7 and 11) around his family's vineyards and the parts of the house relating to the balsamic production, explaining the process of making the balsamic. He was kind to our children, who loved tasting the balsamic at different stages in the barrels, and we all enjoyed learning about the process overall. Warm, informative, and really personable, Emilio made the whole experience wonderful -- and the ending, where we tried hunks of parmesan with balsamic along with his homemade focaccia -- was just perfect.

Highly, highly recommend a visit to this beautiful, small family estate.

All I can say is what a special place on Earth with an amazing product like art their Balsamic vinegars. Our host who gave us a tour Emilio was great and clearly has passion beyond definition. We can only say go out of your way to visit their historic location to see, smell and of course taste true art in their Balsamic vinegars.

This was an excellent tour to discover how balsamic vinegar is made. Sound boring? My 5 and 8-year-olds were captivated by the whole experience. It starts with a tour of the vineyard and grape tasting and then a look at the maturation process in the attic. This is followed by tasting focaccia and Parmesan with vinegar ( which by the way is delicious). This could still be any old factory tour boring coachloads of tourists to death, but this is different because it is a family-run business and generations of knowledge and enthusiasm for their product shine through during the visit. Emilio's warmth of welcome is also worth a mention as you feel like a guest who has popped round for dinner rather than a paying visitor. Don't buy the cheap versions in the supermarket, get a bottle (or two) after your tour here (just sit down for the price!). Highly recommended -especially to people running other local 'attractions' such as the Ferarri museum who demonstrated approimately 0.00001% of Emilio's warmth and knowledge during our visit there.

We visited Emilio and his Mother at their balsamic factory. Emilio gave us a tour of the villa and explained the detailed process and aging process to produce this delicious product. It was like stepping back centuries in this old building with fantastic antique production equipment and other treasures. After the tour, we enjoyed a light lunch and tried some very aged balsamic vinegar. It was terrific. It is well worth the visit, they are a wonderful, enthusiastic family who have great pride in their tradition.
