Bold, complex and an icon of Italian gastronomy, where better to indulge in the full, oozing flavours of Aceto Balsamico than at the heart of its ancestral homeland of Modena? 

When the team at family-run farm, Acetaia Sereni, first envisaged the La Gourmerenda Balsamic tour and tasting, they had a very clear objective in mind, to prove that Sereni’s balsamic vinegar is not just for salads! This unique experience not only unlocks the rich regional identity of Aceto Balsamico, but it captures the emotion, passion and history behind each bottle. 

Situated in the beautiful Villabianca hills between Bologna and Modena, prepare to be fully immersed in the production phases of traditional Balsamic Vinegar from vineyard to bottle, before sitting down for an intimate and informative tasting with tapas.

Just 30km from Bologna, a visit to Acetaia Sereni is a delicious, family-friendly day out from our villas in Tuscany and our luxury holiday rentals near Venice & Verona
