Overview
More
Production of Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena and Balsamic Condiment. The Villa of Vinegar in Modena On March 14th 1910 the project of the Villa was submitted on behalf of Lieutenant Claudio San Donnino. It was later to become an exquisite example of Emilia Romagna "liberty". Frescoes and decorations by Aroldo Bonzaghi (1887-1918) with evocative and voluptuous "dannunzian" allegories generate a magical atmosphere. In that extraordinary place, Davide and Cristina invite you to taste special products of Villa San Donnino.

Its unlike any tourist attraction. You get to this beautiful driveway with gates that looks like you're walking into somebody's vineyard. The house next to the building where they mature the vinegar is very beautiful and provides a fantastic backdrop. The tour around this villa...More

Warm welcome, English speaking tour. Flexible times. Opportunity to taste the real aceto balsamico, nothing to do with what you find at the supermarket, great with ice cream. The nocino was also very good. It is better to book this free tour in advance.

Very nice and informative tour. Excellent English, ample tasting and no stress or even expectation to buy any of the products. A bit hard to find (some additional signs would be nice) but a great experience.
