Great finding!!! We actually found this on Trip Advisor and booked it through T.A. as well and it turned out really well. Marcello and his father were very welcoming and patient explaining to us everything there is to know about the balsamic vinegars. We toured his property, sat down for the vinegar tastings and in the end he fed us with great meats, parmeggiano, wine, desert, digestivo and coffee! We were treated like we were part of the family!

The family and owner of the oldest Balsamico producers showed us very personally insights of giving traditions throughout generations. You get to taste traditional food from the area, history of the importance of preservation of the traditionel culture and much more.
Of course you get the opportunity to think about your own household and consumption behavior in discounter & supermarkets.
This will even open your eyes, if you are a enjoyer of fine dining and get to know what real world class products are and how to identify them.
Definitely a must do!

Many thanks for the tour and we will keep in touch,
Sunita and Phillip

We visited Antica Acetaia after recommendation from a friend. We didn't know what to expect from Aceto Balsamico tasting. What we experienced was fantastic tradition, history telling mixed with tasting of different kinds of Aceto Balsamico as old as 100 years. Marcelo (I hope I spelled it correctly) was extremely welcoming and professional host. We enjoyed every part of the tour. Learning how it started and continued through 7 generations, aceto tasting, drinking great lambrusco and trying local salumi - all was fantastic. Definitely recommend paying a visit.

This was a great tour! We learned and saw how traditional balsamic vinegar is made along with other balsamic products - and how to really tell them apart! The tour was led by one family member and we also met his father. This is truly a family business.

I had been on a tour at a different balsamic house, but the explanations given during the tour were much better and clearer. Making this product is a truly unique process.

And then there was the tasting... of course, you are going to taste their products at the end, but I was surprised at the quality and quantity of the other products offered as well - Parmigiana Reggiano, prosciutto, other meats, bread, etc. It was nice to be able to taste the balsamic products with others - just as you normally would.

100% satisfied with this activity and the purchases made!

What a special place! This was an intimate tour given by Marcello to only our family. We learned so much on this tour about their small production of balsamic. We felt it was much nicer and personable that our visit to Acetaia Giusti, which we had done previously. There was also an area just outside for the kids to play with a trampoline. This is a nice family-run business. Special place.

We were staying in Bologna and decided to spontaneously stop by for a Balsamic vinegar tasting at the Cavedoni family's factory. It was a very memorable experience! Since we were both not the biggest fans of Balsamico before this, we didn't have many expectations going in, but the tasting proved to be very interesting and we learned a lot about the variations in type, aging and quality of the various Balsamicos (and also why we don't like the ones you usually get at home in the supermarket!). The more aged Balsamicos tasted excellent and we definitely would not have wanted to miss this experience; highly recommended when in the Modena / Bologna area!

What an absolutely stunning experience!
Marcello Cavedoni is a phantastic host and knows EVERYTHING about Aceto Balsamico! And the history of the Acetaia and family Cavedoni is as impressive as touching. So much love, tradition and highest of quality in the products!
Since our visit I keep telling everyone to go there and I promise: After you´ve been there you will never again buy some cheap Fake-Balasmico of poor quality you get in every supermarket just because it says "Aceto Balasmico Di Modena G.O.P"!
This label says NOTHING about quality! Let Marcello tell you what real Balsamico is all about and taste a few drops of really old Aceto (I don´t reveal the age here but it´s REALLY old!!!) and you´ll become an Aceto-Connoisseur!

This tour was extremely special. We learnt so much about the traditional way of producing balsamic vinegar and the customs and heritage that are attached to it. We also learnt a lot about the regulations around the marketing of balsamic vinegar and what you are and aren't allowed to declare on labels when selling the final product. The tour ended with a tasting of all the different aged vinegars, first by themselves and then paired with cheeses and meats from the region, accompanied by lambrusco. I 100% recommend this if you are visiting Modena it was a fantastic experience!

My husband and I found this beautiful location through this very website but not one positive review could have prepared us for this unbelievably amazing experience!

From the very beginning we were treated not just as customers but as honored guests and, dare I say, as friends. From an incredibly interesting and informative tour around the property (vineyard, Barrels storage room and workshop) to a delicious tasting of all differently aged balsamic vinegars accompanied by local cheeses, meats and home made Lambrusco, this place was the highlight of our trip.

Marcello, our loveliest of tour guides, answered all of our questions about his trade and also showered us with excellent tips about the different sights one should experience in this beautiful region. His wife backed us a surprise chocolate cake we couldn’t stop shuffling in, and overall we felt for one afternoon like we’re the honor guests of this traditional family. I deeply recommend this tour and we will definitely be back in the near future.

Once again, our warmest thanks to this wonderful man and his family who opens their doors to anyone interested in their culture, trade and way of life.

My wife and I booked a tour as part of a pre-elopement for my wife's best friend and her fiance.

When we arrived, we were greeted like family. We were welcomed into the home, shown about, and taken on a fascinating tour of this family-owned company. The knowledge and passion was obvious and intense, as well as contagious - we all learned so much. Marcello spoke excellent English and was able to field all of our questions.

Afterwards, we treated to a delicious spread of local delights, which far exceeded any expectations. Everything was wonderful, and my vegetarian wife was treated to a salad in lieu of the meat on offer. Of course all the company made samples were wonderful, but the chocolate cake was also fantastic.

My wife is learning Italian, and Marcello and Paulo were happy to chat with her to help her practice and learn a bit more.

Overall, we felt so welcomed and cared for, and left with a real passion for balsamic vinegar. We will only buy it from here in the future. We cannot recommend this enough.
