Made in Italy: Aceto Balsamico di Modena
Meet the Giusti Family


Saturday, November 21, 11:00 am - 12:00 pm CDT via Zoom 
Conversations will be in English

The "Great Deposit of Balsamic Vinegar of Giuseppe Giusti" is the oldest acetaia of the world, founded in 1605 in the town of Modena, in Emilia Romagna, Italy.

More than 400 years have passed since the ancestors of the Giusti family started the first batteries of barrels in the attics of their home in Via Farini.

The 600 historical barrels of the 1700 and 1800, which are still the heart of the Acetaia and the 14 gold medals from that time and the coat of arms of "Suppliers of the Royal House of Savoy", granted by King Vittorio Emanuele III in 1929, are guarded and cared for with love by the different generations of the family.

Today, the historic vinegar factory is led with passion, enthusiasm and innovative momentum from the 17th generation of the family: Claudio Stefani Giusti proudly carries on the family tradition "we deeply feel the value of the historical heritage that we carry with us".
