The production of Vinegar
Back in 1918, in keeping with a long-established family tradition, Luigi Ferretti’s father gave him a small barrel of balsamic vinegar dated 1890. After twenty years in Argentina, Luigi returns to Reggio Emilia and in the attic of a typical residence of the emilian town makes the family Vinegar. Luigi’s first-born son Libero followed his father’s footsteps, acquiring expert knowledge over the years and becoming an excellent wine-taster.
After his father Luigi died, Libero developed the father’s business producing the vinegar. In just a few years, he has became a key figure for everyone in the area: now he is a promoter of the birth of the Consortium for the Protection of Traditional Balsamic Vinegar from Reggio Emilia and one of the top official tasters of the “Confraternita dell’Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale”.
Libero’s invaluable legacy was taken up by his daughter Lucia, who, in the hamlet of Bagno together with her husband Giuseppe, continues with commitment the family tradition.
Now Valeria, daughter of Lucia and Giuseppe, with her husband Valerio lead the family Vinegar, combining tradition and innovation with a modern company that still remains close to its roots.
