About Acetaia Compagnia Del Montale

 

who we areWe produce Balsamic Vinegar from many generations…

It was originally born in that part of the Po region that later became the dominion of the Este House. More precisely, in the territories that were historically subject to the city of Modena. Here, a family vinegar was produced, differing from all others: for a different attitude, use, procedure and final result. It can hear and tell the story of a family, people, land. More than revealing itself spontaneously, it lets it be discovered by those that can understand it with open heart. Once upon a time, it was reserved to the few families from Modena inheriting this extremely old tradition through centuries, then it was taken from the garrets of noble and middle-class houses and welcomed everywhere. Using it wisely, it can reserve many pleasant and exciting surprises while cooking.

In the past, the home head, the so-called “rezdora” (housewife), was sparingly using the precious treasure. Even today it is poured in drops and the tiny dark perfumed pearls come out from the nice typical cruet one by one; not even one is wasted, in silence and under the careful stare of those present. The Balsamic Vinegar, with its double taste, sweet and sour, strong yet delicate, juice, sauce, dressing, elixir and nectar is a matchless and priceless product, a must on the table of the connoisseurs from Modena, both during the simple daily meals or during the great Christmas Eve dinner.
