The family

The history of our family started in 1850, when Pietro Malpighi, great-great-grandfather of the current president of the Acetaia, passed to his son Augusto a precious heritage: the recipe to produce 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. 


Time passed, our spaces have multiplied and today Acetaia Malpighi takes care of more than 3.000 barrels where the real Balsamic Vinegar of Modena stands and slowly ripens, a treasure held in the hearts of those who know it closely.  


Acetaia Malpighi offers an innovative and original range of products, that invites to explore and have fun with food, following emotions and fantasy, with a common thread: excellence.

A millenary culture that mixes with innovation, a centuries-long tradition that melts 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.”
