Explore with us Emilia Romagna’s heritage, with a tour entirely dedicated to some of the best known Italian food ambassadors in the entire world: parmesan and balsamic vinegar.
ItalyCharme will take you to the beating heart of Modena’s favorites, explained directly by the best local producers. Your journey into flavor will start in an “Antica Latteria”, a local family-owned and operated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese factory, where you will be able to visit and explore everything about the delicate art making this product by hand: from boiling the milk to the ageing rooms. You will learn all of the secrets of making this delectable cheese and with the final tasting session, you will also be able to recognize the real Parmigiano Reggiano from any sort of imitation.
From there, we will take you to a local “Acetaia” where you will receive a tour from a prestigious producer of traditional balsamic vinegar in a historical family-run facility. Imagine a farmhouse, dating back to the XVI century, rich in traditions and history, surrounded by vineyards and gardens: this is the kind of place where balsamic vinegar is born.
It’s a family business dating back to the early decade of Italy and still running strong nowadays. There you will journey through wooden barrels, which in some case can date back more than one hundred years, to the actual laboratory where the vinegar is made, learning the secrets of a product beloved and well –known in the entire world. After the tour, once again, it will be time to enjoy this amazing product, with a tasting session that would melt the flavor of this beloved product with the beauty of the surroundings to make the entire experience unforgettable and unique.
