On the hills of Modena, stories of timeless passions to the rhythm of black gold, stories to be discovered slowly.
What will we do:
A day dedicated to the Strada dei Castelli e Ciliegi, in the hills between Bologna and Modena, two friendly and enemy cities that share the paternity of the invention of tortellini of which we will tell you during the visit.
The first wonder we will meet will be Monteveglio, a very ancient village that in the past was considered one of the most important strongholds in the area, the tower and the abbey that stand on top of the hill where the city is located bring to mind an era of clashes and sieges. A little gem that deserves to be visited.
Immediately after crossing the Panaro River we meet Vignola, famous all over the world for its cherries. In addition to the red gold Vignola also has a beautiful and perfectly preserved Rocca that can be visited (admission € 10.00).
And we are already in the lands of Black Gold, the Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena, I believe that few products identify so intensely with the territory that produces them. A thousand-year history that looks more like a fairy tale that has ancient origins and jealously handed down from father to son. A culture handed down to the present day, gestures, places and moments immutable so that we can see in the vinegar cellars barrels of several centuries still in production.
We will discover the simplicity and immense passion behind this unique product, a product that needs at least 12 years of aging to be able to boast the name of Traditional Balsamic Vinegar, not to be confused with Balsamic Vinegar of Modena, one DOC and the other IGP.
During the day we will stop for lunch in a farmhouse where we will taste the typical dishes of Modena and taste, in an ancient vinegar cellar, the Traditional Balsamic Vinegar combining it with the products of this generous land, listening to the story of passion and rhythms in harmony with nature that have transformed a product into a fairy tale, wonderful and delicious.
We are close to Maranello and Maranello means Ferrari, for fans do not miss a visit to the Ferrari Museum.
In the late afternoon return to our hotel.
