Cavalli’s family welcome you to the refined, and in many respect fascinating world of Traditional Reggio Emilia Balsamic Vinegar.
Today it falls upon Giovanni Cavalli to continue this ancient “vinegar-making” tradition.

Our acetaia is located just outside Scandiano, in the high plain of Reggio Emilia, a short distance from the first gentle hills of the Apennines.
In the rustic attic and in special dedicated rooms of our facility rows and rows of newly-started or well-established batterie (vinegar barrels of different sizes tended as a unit) host the precious vinegar. The batterie made up of barrels of different woods represent the only required equipment for proper vinegar formation, allowing optimal ageing and refinement for the most prestigious Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Reggio Emilia.
We bottle and package the vinegar which will then be shipped out of our small facility to markets all over the world, to delight the most demanding restaurateurs and gourmets.
