We had a really great time and would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Modena and/or surroundings! Marcello and Paolo are super friendly and open. It's really amazing to see and hear about their tradition and family history. We have learnt a lot! We got to taste amazing balsamico and we were surprised with the amount of delicious food and wine that was shared with us on top of that. Definitely one of the highlights of our trip! 100% worth the price!

Great experience!
Daniel_M, Sep 2023
A great experience where we learned a lot not only about balsamic vinegar, but also about the families and the philosophy around it. 5 stars.
Amazing experience, we’ll worth the price
Kathleen_Y, Sep 2023
Wonderful experience all around. Way beyond my expectations. Very interesting history of making this traditional balsamic vinegar and appreciating the quality. Fantastic charcuterie with local Parma ham and parmigiana reggano cheese and wines. Not to mention dessert! We’ll worth the price.
Amazing Experience

The afternoon we spent with the Cavedoni family was our most meaningful and memorable experience of our trip to Italy! They were gracious, welcoming, and we were so thrilled to learn about the history of their family and the care they put in to the making of their balsamic vinegars and other products. What a treat!

Was a wonderful and very insightful tour! The hosts were absolutely amazing and we couldn’t have wished for anything more.
AMAZING Balsamic tour!!!
Peter_R, Sep 2023
A truly amazing experience! It ended up we had a private tour because the group of 4 that would have joined us missed the event. Marcellus (son) and Paolo (father) were both amazing. It was educational, informative, etc. I would recommend this tour to anyone. Tour information should tell you to ring the bell at the gate if it is closed when you arrive since this is a private home as well as a vinegar and lambrusco production facility. A few very interesting little towns close by as well.
Delicious and informative!
Ian_C, Sep 2023
A wonderful experience with a great presentation on Balsamic production and aging, how to know if you're getting sold an inferior product, wrapped up with a delicious tasting of local meat, cheese, and dessert from local producers -- all with incredible *real* Balsamico.
Taste of history
Daniel_O, Aug 2023
The most impressive tour as far as culture, knowledge and passion. To touch and taste history with Marcelo’s family Balsamic vinegars was a true experience!! Recommend this to all foodies and passionate people of all natures! Thank you for the memorable experience. Isabella, Roa & Daniel Australia
Vingar pairing with regional foods
Fung_S, Aug 2023
We hired a car for the day to get to this fantastic venue and the host and venue did not disappoint. We learnt so much about how balsamic vinegar is made the traditional way, from harvest to storing. It was fascinating to see the oldest vats of vinegar stored in double barrels. We signed up for the gourmet experience and paired vinegar of various vintages with different types of food--what a revelation! I would highly recommend stocking up on the vinegar from this company as the prices for the vintages of 19 years plus is much more reasonable than those found in the shops dotted around Bologna and Florance.
Amazing balsamic tasting
Isabel_A, Jul 2023
Great experience, very respectful and caring host. It was way more than I expected. Ended up buying 2 types of balsamic and also great Lambrusco wine. Would do it again.
Fantastic Balsamic Vinegar Tour
Brian_J, Jun 2023
The personal tour by a 6th generation family member. Marcello Cavedoni was a awesome host and extremely informative on the family business, the aged balsamic vinegar was fantastic and all aspects of this tour was enjoyable- highly recommended
Feel like part of the family!
Jami_F, Jun 2023
Marcelo’s passion for his family’s balsamic tradition is contagious. We were treated like family. We learned so much about the process and the products. The tasting and food were special, with farm fresh items. A truly special day!
Wonderful, educational experience
Deb_S, Jun 2023
Learning about the family side of the business. Learning what distinguishes various kinds of Basalmic.
Labor of love!
Susan_H, May 2023
The passion this family has for the long standing tradition of making balsamic vinegar is truly amazing. We learned so much about how it is made and got to taste different years of vinegars. Truly a memorable afternoon spent with a wonderful family.
Highlight of vacation
Scot_M, May 2023
The tour we had of the Acetaia Cavedoni Balsamic Vinegar company was one of the top highlights of our trip. The attentiveness and level of detail of the tour was excellent. We had so much fun on this tour and couldn't believe the amount of food provided during the taste testing portion of the tour. We highly recommend this tour to anyone thinking about taking a balsamic vinegar tour.
Very worthwhile!
Adam_K, May 2023

Enjoyable, educational visit with wonderful hospitality. The educational aspect for balsamic was quite impressive! We have traveled Italy for years and this event was the best ever!
Wonderful Balsalmic
Heather_V, May 2023
The family was so proud of their family and product! They were lovely people and explained the heritage and making of the balsamic vinegar. And after there was a tasting. There was so much food that it was our lunch. Would definitely recommend!
A memory to remember for a lifetime!
LAURI_G, May 2023
Beautiful drive to location. Beautiful farm. Tour was over the top - knowledge, tastings, food, items available to purchase, friendliness of owners. We tasted 162 yr. old balsamic vinegar. Loved hearing about the 47 family consortium carrying on the craft. Highly recommend!! I can't go to the grocery store without turning around the balsamic vinegar bottle to see ingredients to determine quality.
