Since 1605 the Giusti family have been producing balsamic vinegar, passing the recipes down through seventeen generations.
In 1863 Giuseppe Giusti was amongst the first to write down the rules for obtaining the 'perfect balsamic vinegar.' This text teaches how the choice of grapes, quality of the casks and the time invested are the fundamental ingredients. They have perfected the art.
In the Giusti attics there are 600 barrels from the 1700s and 1800s which are still producing Balsamic Vinegar. They believe that the older the barrel, the better the product will be, as the essences from the wood and the balsamic aromas that have matured together over the centuries are united.
