Nicolina was the best tour guide we could have asked for; so knowledgeable and happy. The quality of DOP modena balsamic is out of this world; you will be dreaming about balsamic after the taste testers :)

Nicolina is extremely personable and knowledgeable, she did a great job providing the history of making balsamic vinegar in Modena, the process, differences between different types, and of course how to distinguish real traditional aged vinegar from what you’d find in markets. Would 100% recommend!
