Driving about the Italian countryside acre after acre of ripening grapes now meets the eye. Here in Abruzzo, most go into the making of the regions fine wines: particularly Montepulciano, Cerasuolo, and Trebbiano.
But in the Emilia-Romagna region, at least some grapes go into making Traditional Balsamic Vinegar, the region’s Black Gold! So-called because of its high cost and great taste.
You could even get yourself some fine grapes and try making your own balsamic vinegar! Of course, it could never carry the label “Traditional Balsamic Vinegar” as that is strictly controlled. But you might turn out a fairly good vinegar, and have fun in the process!
So what are you waiting for? Watch the video and learn a bit about Emilia-Romagna, Modena, and balsamic vinegar!
