Day 2- morning
Grapes in this area aren’t grown solely for balsamic vinegar. In fact, the main product made from local grapes is wine which, in and around Modena, is synonymous with Lambrusco.
Let's move on to nearby Castelvetro, the area where PDO (protected designation of origin) is produced, and specifically to the village of Levizzano. There, we’ll visit Rosso Graspa, the Museum of Wine and Rural Society, located inside the castle.
After your visit to the museum, don't miss a stop in beautiful Castelvetro—perhaps for lunch.

The natural aging that follows, for two years or longer, requires work, too. The wheels of cheese must be monitored, cleaned, and turned regularly, day after day, to make sure the final product conforms to rigorous quality standards.
