From Florence: Parmesan, Balsamic Vinegar, & Lambrusco Tour

1. From Florence: Parmesan, Balsamic Vinegar, & Lambrusco Tour

This tour from Florence offers you the chance to discover first-hand how Parmigiano-Reggiano, balsamic vinegar of Modena, and Lambrusco wine are produced. Visit factories and estates, taste local wine and products unique to the region, and enjoy lunch. Start your trip by stepping back in time to learn how Parmigiano Reggiano at a biological caseficio (cheese factory). Find out why the provinces of Parma, Modena, and Reggio Emilia are the only ones that can produce authentic Parmigiano Reggiano. Watch cheesemakers at work as they cook the milk to separate the whey and lift the Parmigiano Reggiano, then head to the aging room. Admire the rows upon rows of cheese wheels and inhale their sweet scent. Finish your time at the cheese factory by tasting various types of Parmesan cheese paired with local products. Next, head to an acetaia (balsamic vinegar factory) where you will serve a lunch typical of the Emilia-Romagna region. You will learn about balsamic vinegar-food pairing. Every served dish is carefully paired with several varieties of balsamic vinegar. After lunch, join a private tour of the estate and its cellars. Receive a full explanation of the balsamic vinegar making process, from the pressing of the grapes and cooking the wort in the boiler to the filtration and mixing process. Before heading to the last stop of the tour, taste different types of balsamic vinegar, such as “Tradizionale” and “Extravecchio." Arrive next at a boutique winery that produces Lambrusco wine. Enjoy a wine tasting of the estate's signature wines and fall in love with this sweet frizzante wine that has become a symbol of Modena province. Later, head back to Florence for drop-off.
