The family

The Malpighi family started producing Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena in 1850, when Pietro Malpighi, great-great-grandfather of the current president of the Acetaia, passed to his son Augusto a precious inheritance: the recipe for producing the real and genuine “natural Vinegar”.

"The taste and scent of our Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale di Modena
(Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena)
are the best satisfaction that time can bring us and the best heartfelt present
that can be gifted”

(Augusto Malpighi, 1885-1972)


That precious recipe has passed from hand to hand for five generations, five generations sharing the same passion, the respect for a strong tradition that has been conducted for a long time until nowadays.

Pietro, then Augusto, Grandmother Maria, Ermes (among the founders of the Consortium and AED Master Taster) and today Massimo, who is the president of the family business.
Time has passed, the spaces are now bigger and today we take care of more than 3.000 barrels where the real Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena rests and ages, a treasure that only those who have experienced it can bear into their heart.

Alongside the production of Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena, we have the production of Balsamic Vinegar of Modena, Light, Dark, and Flavoured Dressings, Pearls, Jellies, Seasonings, and Delicacies made with Balsamic Vinegar of Modena.
The Acetaia Malpighi’s product range is innovative and original: it invites people to experiment and have fun in the kitchen, following their own emotions and their fantasies, with a single common thread: excellence.
A millennial culture that mixes with innovation, a centuries-old tradition fused with the most advanced gastronomic research.

It is in Modena that Acetaia Malpighi has its roots.

And it is precisely in this town, where ars naturae and ars cultura melt, that the masterpiece is realized: the cooked grape must transforms into an elixir that enchants all senses.  


When I talk about Balsamico, I am telling a simple story, our story.
Simple like earth and family, like what ties us to our origins.”
