The historic vinegar cellar located on our Roncolo Estate can be found immediately next to the Villa Manodori, which dates back to the 17th century.
It's a place, therefore, that represents the important historical origins of the Venturini Baldini brand, whose assets "among other things" are made up by a battery of more than 400 small barrels 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 our vinegars in single "treasure chests" follow the regulations of the local area, which in turn give us two product lines responsible for bringing delicacies of Emilia Romagna cuisine into the kitchen with the Venturini Baldini logo.
The first is that of Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Reggio Emilia (among which we also like to include "Beatrice's Condiment", which is not a vinegar that follows regulations but still a source of pride for the company), while the second is Protected Geographical Indication balsamic vinegar from Modena. Visiting the vinegar works for us is always like diving back in our family history, inside a location where time seems to stand still: the humid atmosphere, the half-light of the cellar and the aromas of the vinegar are the defining traits of this experience.
