We randomly picked this acetaia after seeing their balsamic vinegar in a local shop and we were so glad we did! The tour guide was a member of the family who owns the business and she spoke excellent English. Plus, since she had grown up around the business she knew it inside and out. She was also full of personality and just a really lovely person. Make sure to call ahead and reserve a tour time if you need an English speaking guide.
The acetaia itself is a comparatively small family owned operation still run in the traditional family way and was a wonderful learning experience. We were able to see the process almost from start to finish (except that it was winter, so no grapes) and were allowed to taste 50 and 100 year vinegars directly from centuries old casks (divine!). Those tastes alone were easily worth the tour price. They have a wonderful gift shop where you can purchase all sorts of items in addition to tasting vinegars and cheeses. An added bonus was that from what I could tell, their vinegars are comparatively very reasonably priced. I highly recommend this place!
