Marcello, the son-in-law of the owners gave us a very informative tour and lecture of the production and history of this process. We highly recommend this tour.

I never knew there was such an art to making balsamic vinegar. It takes years and the quality must be perfect. The 12 and 25 year aged balsamic are the best you will ever taste. The difference is incredible to what we are used to in our local diners and restaurants. This is a must see and taste experience. The owners are gracious and welcoming! We totally enjoyed the awesome experience!

It's pretty much unanimous, but I wanted to add to emphasize how great of an experience the tour and tasting is. Marcello is wonderful, and he thoughtfully answered numerous questions throughout, providing us with a real understanding of this unique product and all that's involved in its production and distribution. When you consider that the tour is free and no pressure is put on you to buy, it even makes it that much more amazing.

I want to thank you for allowing us to taste the wonderful product you family produces. My wife and I decided to go balsamic tasting on a whim while on vacation in Italy and unfortunately we did not know a reservation was needed. Even so, we were greeted graciously and provided a brief history and tasting. The product was of the highest quality as was the hospitality.

Thank you very much!

Although we arrived 10' late and joined the tour group we learned sp.much about the process and the different qualities of balsamic vinegar. Marcello ( our host) was very clear and helpful. The tours are free so they hope you buy from them. But at no point does he pressure you. He offers 4 different types of products to taste. Then it's up to you. He is a lively young person family related. The owner Giorgio waits to greet you when you leave. A charming gentleman. We even asked him for a good local restaurant in Modena and he really nailed it.
I would recommend this place if you are interested in good and cooking or learn about this product
