Here the producer himself will welcome us, touring his vineyards and seeing all the stages of production from the pressing of grapes to the barrel aging. You will smell the delicious scent of vinegar in every corner.

The experience includes plenty of vinegar samples and we’ll taste some very old vinegars, more then 50 y.old, too.

As this family are also olive oil producers, we will also do a proper olive oil tasting before our lunch.

Our morning will end with a delicious lunch directly at the terrace overlooking the valley, based on awards and regionals food, mortadella, Parma ham with vegetables, ravioli with ricotti,  the so famous “gnocco fritto of Modena”, all paired with and a glass of Lambrusco wine produced on-site.

The lunch ends with a fresh ice-cream topped with old balsamic vinegar.

In the afternoon we will visit an outstanding family- run winery, where the producer in person Fabio will host you in his beautiful estate, and you will taste his wines on a panoramic terrace.

If still on time, we can have a quick cafè in Modena center.
