Owner description: Production of Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena and Balsamic Condiment.
Reviewed May 13, 2013

One of the most valuable places where you can find the history behind the tradition of the Balsamico Vinager Production!!! Don't fool yourselves...The famous Aceto Balsamico di Modena is different from the Aceto Balsamico TRADIZIONALE di Modena - DOP.

Signore Leonardi is absolutely a gentleman and passionate about what they do at Villa San Donino!!!

Thank you, DAVIDE!!!

Very special EXCELENT place! The owner is very friendly: he shows production, explain everything, let you taste different Balsamico's. You could also but different types of Balsamico, including Balsamico jam, right there. Looking forward to be back again :)

Caro Davide,

grazie mille for your time and hospitality showing us your Acetaia "Villa San Donnino", describing the complex process of producing the real "Aceto Balsamico TRADIZIONALE di MO" and for giving us the possibility to taste your ´prodotti eccellenti´. We enjoyed it so much - and we still do with a bottle of YOUR Aceto Balsamico, meraviglioso!

We will come back for sure - then with prior notice - during our next trip to the Emilia-Romagna in order to get a further bottle.
Tanti saluti di Svizzera e alla prossima volta! Hopefully, we can speak a little more Italiano next time - the lessons will continue next week…

Patrick

Oh boy did I learn so much about Balsamic Vinegar. Davide, owner and host was very nice and helpful at explaining the difference in traditional balsamic vinegar and commercial balsamic vinegar. I will only buy traditional. We tasted different ages of balsamic vinegar and compared to commercial balsamic vinegar. Did you know balsamic vinegar is great on gelato? It's wonderful. This is a tour not to miss and it's free.
Thank you Davide

Davide,the owner, showed us around.He was a fantastic communicator.Really enthusiastic about his work.Very modest about his achievements.Easy to find as it is close to the autostrada exit Modena east.We are looking forward to opening our balsamic and can now appreciate the work that goes into making it.A visit not to be missed.
