Overview
More
Acetaia Leonardi is a family-run business with closed-loop supply chain. The Leonardi Family controls every single step of the process (cultivation, harvest, and pressing of the grapes, cooking of the must, maturation in wooden barrels and final bottling and packaging). Visiting Leonardi is like stepping back in time. Surrounded by grapevines and founded in 1800s Acetaia Leonardi Farmhouse is the place to visit if you want to taste traditional products and breath agricultural atmospheres. Living a “ balsamic experience” means: tours of the vineyards and the “Acetaia”, visit the company’s museum, professional and detailed tutored tastings and matching of balsamic vinegar with typical local food products.

We arrived without a tour reservation and greeted by the lovely Federica who gave us a special tasting, with particular attention to our young son, and a visit to the barrel rooms. Her passion was obvious and the vinegar was gorgeous. What a lovely experience!...More

Fantastic tour and tasting at this family run business. The tasting was very generous. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable, we left in awe of the delicate process.

There are a couple different tours with different price points. Recall they ranged from €6-8 plus 22% vat. Well worth taking the more extensive tour.

We had a rental car during our stay in Modena and plugged into the navigation. It is Outside of Modena a bit. Not sure if public transportation heads their way.
