Accompanied by a member of the Leonardi family, our beloved guests are welcome to discover the secrets of Balsamic Vinegar of Modena in our historic farm.

While walking through the vineyards and the aging rooms hosting over 3.000 barrels, visiting the Family Balsamic Museum, with its antiques and centenary barrels, you will feel the magic atmosphere and the heady scents all around.

You may try more than 150 years old (i mean..150 years old…) balsamic vinegar directly from the barrels in a very emotional experience involving all your senses.

Then time for “The Grand Balsamic Vinegar Pairing Lunch”, with some courses from the local tradition perfectly paired.

The Balsamic Vinegar is a very unique condiment, produced in limited quantity and only in the geographical areas of Modena & Reggio Emilia.

It seems in fact that the special climate of this region enables the grape must to ferment and maturate in the best conditions according to the traditional methods.
