What you'll do

We are in the medieval village of Castelvetro di Modena, a charming ancient village. You will be welcomed in our boutique shop located on the square of the "Dama", and then we will move together inside the Acetaia. You will not be brought into a museum! We can welcome you in max 12 people. We will our the balsamic vinegar aging rooms, and I'll show you how is made authentic Balsamic Vinegar. Our Acetaia is unique because it is kept inside 3 floors of a towerdated back to the 16 century. You will first lear about the differences quality of wooden barrels, you will have the chance to touch the oldest barrels (early '900), to breath the wonderful balsamic scents (all different) and than, top taste them. The view from the top floor of the tower is breathtaking! Then we will go down again to the shop, where together we will have a vertical tasting of 6 different agings of Balsamic Vinegar, including a special reserve aged 100 years. The tasting will be done professionally, by teaspoon, and I will teach you to recognize the merits and defects of the product. You will become a true expert!
