Carandini vinegar

In every drop of our Vinegar there are Four Centuries of History

Carandini's story is as old as the story of Balsamic Vinegar of Modena. Since 1641, the finest vinegar has carried the surname Carandini, one of the oldest noble families of Modena. Its health-giving properties and distinctive, bittersweet, balanced and harmonious flavour are the result of a long artisanal tradition handed down from generation to generation. From Antonio to Giuseppe, to Bianca and Emilio,  the ancient craft has been handed down from father to son.

Today, when you open Carandini's products, you're not only tasting the best vinegars but also experiencing an ancient history that has enchanted food lovers around the world.
