Moreover, it must be said that a visit to the Acetaia is always an opportunity to taste Balsamic Vinegar and local gastronomic products.

Acetaia tours in Modena: the proposals of Acetaia Marchi

We at Acetaia Marchi open the doors of our vinegar cellar to show it to those who love balsamic vinegar and want to discover its history and production methods. We offer two types of visit: the typical and the personalised one. The typical one begins with a walk through the vineyard, and then continues in the vinegar cellar to discover the entire production process. We take visitors on a tour of Balsamic Vinegar, illustrating the different stages of production: from crushing our grapes to cooking the must, from ageing in barrels to bottling. Afterwards, there will be tastings that will prove to be unique organoleptic experiences.

The customised visit boasts the same features but is planned considering specific requests and needs. Both types of vinegar tours in Modena end in our Balsamic Shop. This is our shop where we offer a sale of Balsamic Vinegar retail service. We also offer balsamic vinegar dressings and other carefully selected local products for our customers and visitors to the vinegar cellar. During visits, our guests have the opportunity to recharge their electric cars.
