History of a tradition

Modena and its province as well as for the Traditional Balsamic Vinegar is known all over the world for excellences ranging from Motors, to Music, to culinary traditions (La Francescana, repeatedly named best restaurant in the world is located right here).

Modena is full of unique places to visit, the magnificent Duomo with its Ghirlandina and the prestigious Military Academy dating back to 1678 are just two examples of what you can find walking through the streets of the city center.

Our ACETAIA is located about 30 km from Modena in the “Bassa Modenese” where time seems to pass more slowly and the countryside are expanses of cereal crops to which orchards alternate for the production of pears or rows of Lambrusco and Trebbiano vines to name the best known ones.

These areas, located in the middle of the Po Valley, crossed by the rivers Secchia and Panaro have been, under the dominion of the Estensi, for a long time part of the Duchy of Modena and Reggio and you can still admire numerous architectural testimonies including the various Este Rocks in the area.   

The nearby Mirandola instead capital of the Lordship of the Pico from 1310 for at least 3 centuries has given birth to Giovanni Pico della Mirandola famous humanist and philosopher of 1400.

In the municipality of San Felice sul Panaro, a municipality where you will find the MOLINARI ACETAIA, passes the Ciclovia del Sole, an innovative cycle path that connects Bologna to Verona, a local and evocative stretch of the ambitious European project Velo 7 to connect the North Cape and Malta cycle paths.
