The vinegary of “La Cà dal Nôn” has been producing Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena for five generations. The great grand father Alfonso started this tradition in their house, and since then their attics have always been full of barrels for the production of this unparalleled elixir. In Modena’s dialect“La Cà dal Nôn” means “the house of the grandfather”, and it is still in his ancient house in Vignola, that they have their establishment. The vineyards of “La Cà dal Nôn” are located on the rolling hills of the small village of Savignano sul Panaro. Trebbiano, Lambrusco, Pignoletto and other local grape varieties are grown following the organic protocol, selecting only the best grapes to produce their cooked grape must.
