Wine-tasting in Italy is almost a traveler’s rite of passage, but few tours explore the equally rich traditions of vinegar production. With this tour, visit one of Modena’s oldest traditional balsamic vinegar producers, touring the vineyards and seeing all the stages of production from the pressing of grapes to the barrel aging. The tour includes plenty of vinegar samples, regional food tastings, and a bottle of wine produced on-site.
  • Visit one of the oldest balsamic vinegar producers of Modena
  • The small-group tour allows for an up-close look at all stages of vinegar production
  • Sample aged balsamic vinegar, plus food and wine
  • The tour is led by a member of the family which has run the vinegar production for seven generations

Amazing vinyard and product facility. The family is awesome. The light snacks are more than light. It could of been lunch on its own. This tour is fantastic. Only thing to note is be prepared to travel 30min from the train station in Modena. DO NOT MISS THIS AMAZING EXPERIENCE.

Amazing Tour, Vinegar, and Food!

We had a wonderful experience. It was really interesting to hear about the generations of the family business and how the product is made. Then the tasting was amazing and delicious, pairing everything you can imagine with the vinegars. We brought three generations (including my mother-in-law and my 12 and 10 year old), and it was a hit with everyone. I highly recommend it!

Top Notch Experience

One of the trip highlights! With all the Acetaia options in the Modena area it was difficult to pick one but my group felt like we chose one of the best, if not the best. Oldest production, since 1860, and overall a quality experience with the explanation of the processes as well as the tasting of the multiple products offered. By the end of it we honestly had no choice but to get ourselves some Black Gold because it was truly that delicious. Thank you Marcello and Paolo!

Our first visit to an Acetaia, and i think we picked the right one! The family couldn’t have been more gracious. Delivering more than expected. We sampled DOP balsamic from their batterie’s, ranging from 12 to 162 years old! Also their IGP products, Lambrusco wines, etc. accompanied by a huge platter of mortadella, prosciutto, Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and bread.

We had a wonderful time and learned a lot about balsamic vinegar of Modena on this tour of a family vinegar factory that has been making balsamic vinegar since 1860. Paulo, the owner, and his son Marcella were so warm and welcoming that we felt like family. We started our tour with their homemade Lambrusco and finished with a delicious spread of meats, cheeses, desserts and homemade walnut liquor.

This experience was amazing! They’re the nicest small family in the business and the tasting and tour were so cool. The products I tasted were so delicious and they only tasted better knowing the history and meaning behind all of their creations. Everything is so personalized in the way that only a small business can do. Even the dessert with the tasting was made by the tour guide’s wife. This was for sure a once in a lifetime experience! Highly, highly recommend!!!

We had such a lovely day! It was very impressive to see all the different steps when it comes to the making of Balsamico. Also the tasting of the different types was very special and we had a terrific lunch with amazing products. We felt very welcomed by the family, they were so kind showing us around and sharing their passion. The tour exceeded our expectations and we would definitely recommend it!

Memorable Day

I was traveling solo and it just so happened that no one else signed up for a tour on that day. Despite only having one guest, the owners (father and son) gave me a complete tour, told me so many interesting things I never even thought to ask about balsamic vinegar, and offered such warm hospitality. The spread of food was delicious and I enjoyed tasting a variety of different vinegars and other condiments. I learned so much and thoroughly enjoyed my experience. Highly recommend checking this out!

Learning & seeing how their balsamic vinegar is made and passed down for generations. Everything about the tour was great. I don’t remember his name but he took his time explaining and answering all of our questions. It felt like we were guests in his home.

I would highly recommend touring the Acetaia Cavedoni. The Cavedoni family is so incredibly warm and welcoming and has such an interesting story. The vinegar and other items we tried were all delicious. Even though we went in late December, so pretty off season and grapes gone from the vines, it was a wonderful experience and we would do it again.

A MUST experience in Modena (skip the lunch and come here)

OMG! Where do I begin? If you are in Modena or close to the city, you should come to this experience. I went there for my honeymoon and this experience was definitely in the top 3 of all our trip. If you have enjoyed balsamic vinegar in the past or if you are curious about the process you need to come to this place to learn from an Italian family about this delicious product. I loved the place, the family is very nice and knowledgeable and I really felt very privileged to be there spending time eating and enjoying their locally-made products. I am vegan, I wrote that on the notes when I reserved the experience but I was not expecting a vegan meal for me at the time of the experience. Such a nice gesture! I really recommend this activity for families, couples or even if you are traveling by yourself. Worth every penny!

Very informative and delicious. We saw and tasted what might be the oldest balsamic in the world! And the family is very generous with the food, wine, and balsamic at the end.
