Acetaia Guerzoni -The Story
The story of Acetaia Guerzoni begins with my grandfather Arduino and grandmother Zina. After many years of work in the countryside in Modena Lowlands, using a lifetime of savings, they managed to buy an old cottage surrounded by vineyards. Their son Felice (my father) and wife Iride (my mother) began progressive conversion of the vineyards into an organic and biodynamic model of agriculture.
Deep respect for nature and love for their work allowed them to overcome all the difficulties.
In the early 80s, our farm, when there still was no such thing as an organic certification in Italy, already complied with the guidelines set by a German body of control (Demeter), now spread worldwide. In the same years the production of Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena began.
Today Acetaia Guerzoni factory is the only one in the world to hold both an organic and a biodynamic certificate. And we are really proud of it.
