The Verrini Family
One of the families we work with to create our balsamic vinegar collection are The Verrini’s, who have a beautifully tranquil estate in the countryside to the north of the city.
There the Trebbiano and Lambrusco grapes used to make the balsamics are grown, crushed, and then matured in ancient oak barrels.
The main man in the family business is Nicolo Verrini who, for such a young man, has a vast amount of knowledge about grapes and creating balsamic vinegar. His expertise is both practical and theoretical; he has been working on the estate since he was an infant at the feet of his grandfather and later his father, and has gone on to study Viticulture and Oenology (the science of grape growing and wine making) at the University of Bologna.
Nicolo has been invaluable in helping us to create our Classic and Reserve ranges of balsamic and our delicious and unique infusions are the result of many hours spent creating with him in the estates’ tasting rooms.
