From Vine To Bottle In Just 100 Years
About an hour from Modena, along winding roads and tucked away in a small village between vineyards, almond groves and farmyards, is an amazing experience I highly recommend that you try for yourselves.
At Corte dei Campi Macri, the Leonardi family have been making Modena's balsamic vinegar since 1871 using time-honored methods. They grow and hand-harvest their own Trebbiano and Lambrusco grapes, grown in the vineyards that surround their countryside property. They carefully cook the juice in special kettles according to their own recipe for as long as 36 hours to produce the Must that will sit for years in barrels. They age the vinegar for decades to gather intense flavors and textures before selling their elixir at the farm, and around the world.
