Today, we went to a beautiful home I Modena where they produce Balsamuc Vinegar over many years. We tasted 7 vinegars that were aged from 15-25 years. They were so unique with subtle differences. They dont sell to shops, but freight to anywhere in the world.

It felt so GOOD to get here, get a shower and take a deep breath after being up and in travel status for about 32 hours!
