Old Acetaia

Treasured traditions and modern appeal in the heart of Emilia-Romagna

Would you like to give your guests an authentic taste of local life? Combine your event with a guided tour of the Balsamic museum inside the historical Leonardi Balsamic farm, for an unforgettable experience. Experience unique sensations in the attics where “BLACK GOLD OF MODENA” is made, with something for all the senses: first and foremost sight and smell, followed by touch (you won’t be able to resist the urge to brush your fingers against the rows of age-old barrels) and finally hearing, with the sound of birds singing and the calls of the peacocks that stand guard over the mansion.

Old Acetaia

Corte Leonardi is home to an old Acetaia (upper floor loft) that was built in the mid-19th century to make Leonardi Balsamic Vinegar of Modena. When he died, founder Giuseppe Leonardi left some barrels of balsamic vinegar to his son Vito. This treasured inheritance was moved to Vito’s farm in Magreta, which is still run by the Leonardi family today.
