At the Acetaia del Cristo since three generations we are working in order...

At the Acetaia del Cristo since three generations we are working in order to pass on the cultural heritage and charm of TRADITIONAL BALSAMIC VINEGAR of MODENA, which in the past was restricted to family use and closely guarded in the attics of our forefathers. To date, we can still claim we are the most important world producer of Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena, thanks to 2000 casks exclusively used to produce Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena PDO (Protected Designation of Origin). It is us personally, along with our families, who carry out every single step in full compliance with the most ancient traditions and the PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) regulations: from cultivating our organically farmed grapes, to vintage, must cooking and the delicate drawing, decanting and topping-up operations.

Fascinating private tour of this family run business. Personalised tour provided by Eleonora and Valentina.

We turned up on Daniele's busiest day of the year as he was preparing for a festival. Despite that, he was so keen to welcome us and gave us the time to do free tastings with us. He explained, without hurry, the history of traditional balsamic vinegar and allowed us to taste several different ages and flavours including a 50+... More

Having organised a short notice long weekend in Bologna, we were very keen to see traditional balsamic vinegar being produced. We aren't fans of organised tours (of which there are loads charging prices of around €150 pp and up) so we organised an independent tour to Acetaia del Cristo. Eleonora was very efficient over email at arranging a private tour... More

Upon hearing we would be passing through the Modena area on the way to Bologna, a friend who happens to be something of a vinegar aficionado, who also knows how much we enjoy wine, asked if we'd ever considered doing a tour of a balsamic vinegar producer. We had not but he was beyond enthusiastic so, rather than hunt for... More

A very interesting tour. From seeing the Vinyard, to understanding what happens in the wood barrels for the first 12 yrs, to tasting the delicious syrup like substance they call balsamic vinegar, it all was so interesting and so worth the tour. We walked away with 3 bottles of the delicious vinegar.

We (a couple) simply stopped and rang the bell outside the farms entrance. Despite not coordinating our visit in advance, we were allowed in and in less than five minutes the great guide (her name escapes me, sorry) showed us through the production process and patiently answered our questions. We were surprised to learn that what we know as "balsamic... More

True traditional balsamic vinegar of Modena is EXPENSIVE, there is no way around it. So I was secretly worried when I booked this it would be a short tour and a long sales pitch. That couldn't have been farther from the truth. Daniele was very thorough and explained every step and showed us every barrel with a mixture of pride... More

Acetaia del Cristo is in a stunning location just outside Modena.
