Set into the neatly adorned and carefully planted vineyards of Modena stands the balsamic house “Pedroni Acetaia”. Initially established as a tavern in 1862 by founder Giuseppe Pedroni, the name quickly became synonymous with balsamic vinegar throughout Modena. Utilizing large empty beer casks made from oak to begin the fermenting process, and smaller Marsala casks made from chestnut, to carefully age his balsamic, Pedroni started a tradition for the production of the luscious and acidic vinegar that has been passed down from generation to generation within the Pedroni family. Today, Pedroni is managed and operated by a member of the sixth generation of the family.
