Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena

Researching Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena

Upon researching the production of a true Traditional Balsamic Vinegar, I found a series of short videos on YouTube that I’d like to share with you. It’s not very often you get to take a peek inside the makings of an age old Italian tradition!

Mario Gambigliani (artisan producer and expert of Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena and Chair of the Consorzio) explains the painstakingly slow process. Here you will be able to take a tour of an official “acetaia,” where the production of Traditional Balsamic Vinegar starts and finishes in about 25 years! Check it out! Total video time is only 4 minutes and 7 seconds.
