Acetaia La Tradizione

Balsamic Code

Who we are

La Tradizione is a Cooperative of Balsamic Art, a group of quality balsamic artisans animated by a strong passion who have collected and handed down from father to son the secrets to obtain this precious masterpiece of gastronomy. Day by day, they lovingly follow the aging process of Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena, and for many years accompany and care for it as an integral part of the family. They hand down the secrets to obtain this precious condiment like a Witness code.
The Cooperative was established on December 3, 2001 on the initiative of 14 members wishing to create a structure capable of promoting and distributing Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena P.D.O. throughout the world. The main objective is to be able to maximize the sale of the ABTM conferred by its members. The initiative soon received the adhesion of new members reaching the current number of 25 corporate members.
Strategically, the company initially considered it correct to market exclusively ABTM, but over the years, having acknowledged the evolution of the market, it changed its orientation by integrating its range with different products, completing its production with Balsamic Vinegar of Modena PGI. With the current 25 members La Tradizione represents one of the most important realities in the ABTM market as the members have a total of about 4,000 barrels with a stock of 200,000 lit. of maturing product.
Over the years, La Tradizione has concentrated its sales mainly on the national market with a strong concentration of turnover in the months close to Christmas as a gift product and then began to market its products abroad. Each member of the cooperative produces vinegar in their own vinegar cellar and when needed gives the headquarters their product placed in tanks divided by type, age and organoleptic characteristics, complete with documentation certifying the barrels of origin, brought to the Consortium Protection by the cooperative with the manufacturer's list. This is tested by physical and organoleptic chemical analysis and, if deemed suitable, it is bottled, otherwise returned to the producer. At the top of each bottle there is a progressive alphanumeric seal, which identifies the batch to which it belongs, the vinegar factory and the producer.

Traditional Vinegar Of Modena P.D.O.

Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena P.D.O. is produced with a single ingredient, the must obtained from the first pressing of the native Modena grapes. The production technique has refined over the centuries. The must is cooked in open vessel boilers over direct heat and atmospheric pressure for several hours, then left to cool and ferment in large wooden or glass containers, recently stainless steel is mostly used as a material that is easier to clean and less delicate than glass.
