PROGRAM

1st day Balsamic vinegar experience

After breakfast in hotel. Departure to with your own vehicle to Modena where you will visit a local factory of BALSAMIC VINEGAR. The Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena is produced from cooked grape must, matured by slow acidification thanks to natural fermentation and progressive concentration after a long aging process in different types of fine wood barrels, without adding any aromatic substance. This gives a bright and dark brown color, the density of which can be admired by a soft and balanced texture. During the visit there will be a tasting of balsamic vinegar, this can be done from 9.00 to 12.30 and from 14.00 to 17.30
