Balsamic Vinegar: A Living Tradition

Balsamic Vinegar: A Living Tradition

Bologna, ItalyCall For Price Full Day

Discover the art and craft of balsamic vinegar making with our Local, who will be taking you to a beautiful late-1800s villa in the countryside of Modena where the balsamic vinegar tradition is still alive and well. Did you know that this amazing condiment is made from cooked Trebbiano and Lambrusco grapes and aged for 10-plus years in different types of wood barrels? 


This Experience entails a vinegar tasting and informative visit to a private family villa where balsamic vinegar is produced. Delight your palate and senses by enjoying the aromatic subtleties of different varieties of balsamic. Learn about its use in all kinds of dishes and recipes used for centuries in the local cuisine, and discover its history, the various types, and the production process. In addition, you’ll get to sample the balsamic vinegar with tasty local products — even try it with some gelato!


After the balsamic visit and tasting, you will stop at a local trattoria (home-style Italian restaurant) for a delicious and affordable lunch, then continue on to Modena, known as the City of Engines as Ferrari, Lamborghini, and Maserati factories are based there. While we walk around and enjoy a coffee and digestif, or perhaps a gelato, hopefully we will be able to spot a few of these luxury cars.
