Generations in the making

For more than 30 years, Mazzetti has been one of the world’s leading names in Balsamic Vinegar of Modena - but our story begins much earlier.

It all started with Felice.

Felice was a soldier in the First World War, but as peacetime returned, he began working once more as a distiller of fine Italian spirits.

He was making a trip to Vignola, Modena, to stock up on the special cherries he used to make his spirits. And it was then, in the house of one of his cherry suppliers, that he first tried Modena’s ‘Black Gold’.

At that moment, a family tradition was born.

The rest is delicious history.

In the generations since, Aceto Balsamico di Modena has become an unalterable part of the Mazzetti family DNA.

Felice’s son, Franco, transformed his father’s passion for this bold, complex, elegant creation into a successful business — and Franco’s son, Cesare, followed suit and took their Italian treasure to the world.

For almost 80 years, the Mazzetti family has perfected the Italian craft of balsamic vinegar of Modena. The story of each Mazzetti bottle - from the grape to the barrel and to the heart of your kitchen - is a story worth sharing.
