Franco Mazzetti | Mazzetti l'Originale Balsamic Vinegar of Modena

Generations in the making

For more than 30 years, Mazzetti has been one of the world’s leading names in Balsamic Vinegar of Modena - but our story begins much earlier.

It all started with Felice.

Felice was a soldier in the First World War, but as peacetime returned, he began working once more as a distiller of fine Italian spirits. 

He was making a trip to Vignola, Modena, to stock up on the special cherries he used to make his spirits. And it was then, in the house of one of his cherry suppliers, that he first tried Modena’s ‘Black Gold’.

At that moment, a family tradition was born.

The rest is delicious history.

In the generations since, Aceto Balsamico di Modena has become an unalterable part of the Mazzetti family DNA.

Felice’s son, Franco, transformed his father’s passion for this bold, complex, elegant creation into a successful business — and Franco’s son, Cesare, followed suit and took their Italian treasure to the world.

Now, almost 80 years after Felice’s life-changing maiden sip, we’re as passionate as ever about the dazzling flavors, aromas and the unique character of our Aceto Balsamico di Modena.

To this day, every bottle of Mazzetti l'Originale is a tale of the patience, practice, care and craftsmanship that we put into it – from grape to barrel to the heart of your kitchen.

Here’s to the next 80 years, and to the sharing of family traditions - from our table to yours.
