Aceto Balsamico del Duca
Aceto Balsamico del Duca can date back to the late 19th century, when the owner of a prestigious delicatessen, “Premiata Salumeria Grosoli”, established in 1891 by Adriano Grosoli, started the sale of self-produced specialties such as salami, sausages, meat, Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, Lambrusco wine, and Balsamic Vinegar. When Adriano’s died, he passed the company on to his son Mario and then to his grandson Adriano in 1972, who is now the current owner. In 1974 Adriano, decided to devote all his energy exclusively to the production of Balsamic Vinegar of Modena. Later Adriano’s daughters Mariangela and Alessandra entered the business management of the firm and today, the Grosoli family continues to produce with the same passion and experience passed on through four generations. The family decided to build new premises which were opened in 1992 to meet the requirements for more space due to the increasing demand of Balsamic Vinegar of Modena, and this was expanded in 2004. Adriano Grosoli chose the name “Aceto Balsamico del Duca” in order to link his product with the prestige of Duke Francesco I D’Este; one of the most famous producers and consumers of Balsamic Vinegar of Modena, a favorite dressing of the Estense court.
