  3. Tour Itinerary

    Day 1 : Florence

    Pick-up and departure


    Cheese Factory

    At this caseificio (cheese factory) you will be introduced to the universe of parmesan cheese and get to know its secrets. Behind every roll of Parmigiano Reggiano is more than meets the eye, due to the intricate traditional recipe behind and the controlled conditions of the entire process.

    You will watch cheese makers at work and witness the entire process. The tour of the factory will eventually lead to the aging room (‘stagionatura’ in Italian), where you will admire rows and columns of cheese wheels perfuming the air. The factory produces more types of cheese, all organic.

    The caseificio tour will end with a tasting of Parmesan Cheese accompanied by honey and marmalade.


    Lambrusco Boutique Winery

    Moretto winery is a family-run company producing Lambrusco Grasparossa for three generations. The makers pay a lot of attention to the peculiarities of the territory, preferring quality over quantity. Lambrusco is typical of the region Emilia-Romagna and was produced with the idea of pairing it with other traditional products from the area, all of which you will taste during the day.

    You will tour the entire estate, starting off with the vines, vinification and rooms and finishing off in the modern tasting room. You will taste different types of Lambrusco that possess distinct characteristics and flavours.


    Balsamic Vinegar Factory

    Today Acetaia Sereni is a leader in the production of traditional balsamic vinegar of Modena and a vast range of sweet and sour condiments. Here you will have a consistent lunch at the property's restaurant that is overlooking a breathtaking scenery.

    Afterwards, you will have a private tour of the cellars, receiving a full explanation of the Balsamic Vinegar’s manufacturing process: from the pressing of the grapes and the wort boiling, to the filtration and mixing steps. The visit will end with a balsamic vinegar tasting.
