Overview
More
At the Acetaia del Cristo since 4 generations we are working in order to pass on the cultural heritage and charm of TRADITIONAL BALSAMIC VINEGAR of MODENA, which in the past was restricted to family use and closely guarded in the attics of our forefathers. To date, we can still claim we are the most important world producer of Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena, thanks to 2000 casks exclusively used to produce Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena PDO (Protected Designation of Origin). It is us personally, along with our families, who carry out every single step in full compliance with the most ancient traditions and the PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) regulations: from cultivating our organically farmed grapes, to vintage, must cooking and the delicate drawing, decanting and topping-up operations.

True traditional balsamic vinegar of Modena is EXPENSIVE, there is no way around it. So I was secretly worried when I booked this it would be a short tour and a long sales pitch. That couldn't have been farther from the truth. Daniele was very...More
