The history of the famous balsamic vinegar
It found its way from the medicine cabinet to the gourmet cuisine. The Romans used the boiled grape most as medicine and found out, that the fermented juice has a disinfecting effect. And soon, some gourmets recognized the culinary qualities of the brown elixir.

Today, it belongs to one of the most important ingredients of the Italian cuisine. The Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale is secured with a EU label since 2000. In 2009, the “normal” balsamic vinegar, the Aceto Balsamico di Modena, followed.
