Collection: Acetaia Gambigliani Zoccoli
The Gambigliani Zoccoli Vinegar, a symbol of the production of the Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena D.O.P., is positioned, as usual, in the basement of the historic Villa di Famiglia; this leads them to welcome visitors directly to their historic home, creating a very familiar and direct hospitality climate, which is immediately perceived by the guests.
"We, like thousands and thousands of other Modenesi families, have always produced Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena D.O.P. for self-consumption; it is therefore very difficult to define when the family tradition was born. It can help me that I have barrels that belonged to my great grandfather Mario (like my father) but I’m sure that if I stopped I would take them away from someone.
The turning point happened in the seventies - a period in which balsamic vinegar was produced exclusively for passion and self-consumption - when my grandfather Giorgio (like me) decided to start as many as three hundred barrels. Let’s say that at the time, while enjoying great esteem on an entrepreneurial, social and personal level, I’m pretty sure that someone doubted his lucidity!"
