Balsamic vinegar

The visit

The Balsamic tour takes us into the unchanging world of the wine and balsamico maker.
Firstly you will see the splendid 40 acre vineyards and be guest of this supplier of top outlets across the world… including Harrods of Knightsbridge London.

We can then visit the Lambrusco Museum before entering the world of the balsam makers – 4 generations continuing 100 years of family tradition winning the Gambero Rosso in 2011 and World Wine Challenge for best sparkling wine in 2010.
The finest of the annual grape yeild are crushed and the “must” is then slowly boiled over charcoal for 24-30 hours.

The ‘must’ is aged and decanted in different woods for a minimum of 12 years.
The color is dark brown and warm amber in the light.

You will visit the Must maturing room and the batteria lofts of a producing family of 4 generations and taste 15 year old, 22 and 28 year old Balsamico from the antique barrels.
Over the past 50 years the world’s leading chefs have ignited an international interest in this product.
And yes, it can be drizzled over ice cream and strawberries!
