About this activity
Mariangela's family 'acetaia' (Italian for home for vinegar that ages vinegar in barrels) was started by Mariangela’s great grandfather Alfonso, and built for their family’s use. Since then, the lofts of the ancient house in Vignola have been full of vinegar barrels made from organic grapes from their vineyards in Savignano sul Panaro. The acetaia as we know it now, called "La Cà dal Non” (house of the grandfather) was started in 1996 by Mariangela and her brother. While studying at university, Mariangela grew interested in the family tradition and decided to sell vinegar to the public in her grandfather’s name. Traditional balsamic vinegar can take 2-25 years to mature and it makes you respect the process and the time it takes to make a great vinegar.
Mariangela loves working with the barrels and is fascinated by the fact that you can work on a product started by someone you have never met. She spent a lot of time in their loft, learning with her father, and her time their now brings back fond memories of her time together with her father, learning their family tradition.
Mariangela is excited to share her culture, family history, and the tradition of vinegar making in Modena with travelers. On days that Mariangela is away, her mother Giovanna, also an expert at vinegar will be your host.
Please note: Mariangela can be flexible with time in the morning so if you would like to start slightly earlier or later feel free to let her know when making your booking. Please also note that this producer does offer a free tour directly on her site. The difference between their free offer and this experience is that it is a private experience with the owner herself and includes a food pairing and a bottle of travel-sized saba vinegar that you can take home.
