Venturini Baldini | Modena, North East Italy
Venturini Baldini is a beautiful 150ha winery and balsamic vinegar estate situated in the historical hills of Matilde di Canossa in Emilia. Dating back to the 17th century, it is home to Villa Manodori and one of the oldest vinegar cellars in the region, with more than 400 small barrels of balsamic vinegar aged in a variety of different types of wood.
From juniper to oak, cherry to ash, through to chestnut, each barrel confers an unmistakeable aroma to the vinegar. The cultivation period and ageing time of their vinegars follow the regulations of the local area, which in turn produces two separate product lines: Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Reggio Emilia and Protected Geographical Indication balsamic vinegar from Modena.
