THE FIRST ORGANIC AND BIODYNAMIC
BALSAMIC VINEGAR OF MODENA PGI
Our history begins with our grandparents Arduino and Zina. After many years working in the lower Modenese countryside, they purchased with their lifesavings a cottage surrounded by a vineyard. In the 1970s, their son Felice and his wife Iride converted the vineyard to organic and biodynamic. This was considered madness at the time; however, their profound respect for nature helped them overcome all challenges. At the beginning of the 1980s, our farm followed German biodynamic policies. Italy had yet to distribute organic certification, so our certification was granted by a Germany controlling body (Demeter). In the same years, we began to produce traditional balsamic vinegar from Modena. Nowadays, our vinegar company is the only one in world to be certified organic and biodynamic. This is perhaps one of our greatest prides.
