Others have said it all already. We had a lovely afternoon with Marcello, a super-pleasant and friendly guy, who explained the balsamic vinegar manufacturing process as well as what makes the real Modena stuff different and the best. Marcello was incredibly generous, first offering us...More
The tour, which is really a short history lesson and tasting is amazing. I learned a lot about balsamic vinegar and now that I have tasted the real thing, don’t know how I will be able to consume commercial balsamic vinegar again

Sorry, have not been on the website for awhile. Hope you visited. The 'guide' is the fiancee of the company's daughter (Carlotta, I believe, with one of the vinegars named after her). LOVED the balsamic in the tasting room. Amazing place. Lovely people there. The guide introduced us to his future in-laws.
