Traditional Balsamic Vinegar is made in the ancient "Domini Estensi" area using cooked grape must, matured with a slow vinegarisation. Dark brown in colour, it has a characteristic smell and a traditional, inimitable and well-balanced sweet and sour flavour.
Visitors to the museum can explore each phase of the balsamic vinegar making process from vine selection to constructing the barrels, as well as harvesting, pressing, cooking the must and the acetaia.
Guests can discover the complexities of how the vinegar is prepared and learn the need to protect its name, regulate its manufacturing process as well as appreciate its unique nature while discovering each phase of a process which - up until now - has been jealously guarded by family-owned acetaie.
They can take part in a unique Modenese experience and contribute to supporting the continuity and respect of a centuries-old tradition. GUIDED TOURSGuided tours can be booked over the telephone during the Museum's opening hours or by email by writing to the address above.
