Balsamic Vinegar of Modena

Produce of Modena, Italy

From Modena, the spiritual and physical home of authentic balsamic vinegars, comes this gorgeous vinegar with rich aromatic flavour and beautiful deep colour with a versatility of use across different cuisines.

Provenance – a products origin – is important to the makers of balsamics. Like a french champagne, or a piece of parmigiano from Regiono, balsamic vinegar from the Modena area are much imitated but rarely equalled, and ours comes with the important “I.G.P” certification: the “protected Geographical Indication label issued by Italy’s agriculture ministry to prove its provenance.

Our Balsamic Vinegar of Modena is a great multi tasking condiment for any kitchen; perfect for antipasti, for drizzling across salads and bite-sized chunks of hard Italian cheeses, for serving with our olive oils, and for simply dipping with artisanal breads.

Also available as an incredible duet with our beautiful Extra Virgin Olive Oil in our Power Dressing gift set.  Or for something spectacular try our Well Oiled hamper

The Makers Story

A life of care & attention
for the land and a drive for
sustainable "goodness"

Danilo Manco has been making his own award-winning blends of olive oils since 2001, and for as long as he can remember with his family before then. At Makers and Merchants we love his sense of provenance, his care and attention for the land and traditional manufacturing process, as well as his divine olive oil blends, infusions and balsamics.

Originally from Puglia in southern Italy, Danilo’s life is
intimately connected to the seasonal rhythm of olive growing.
He inherited his skills from his father and grandfather but he
traces his passion to a life changing epiphany as a young boy
harvesting olives with his grandfather. Frustrated by his own
slow olive picking, he picked up a wooden stick and started to
thrash at the olive branches. His grandfather stopped his attack
and asked him how he would feel if the stick was used in the
same way on him. And in that seminal moment a life lesson
in good husbandry was learned, and a drive for sustainable
“goodness” born.

He believes that what tastes good should also ‘be good’, so all his
products are carefully hand picked at just the right stage of
ripeness, traditionally stone cold-pressed at the local mill, and
kept free of colourants, additives and anything else that
interferes with the authentic natural flavours derived from the
Italian countryside.
