La Vecchia Dispensa
La Vecchia Dispensa was born in
1975 in Castelvetro di Modena from Pelloni–Tintori family’s
passion for good cooking. The family run Acetaia, handed down for 4 generations,
holds the family most precious treasure. In addition, they reached a high cooking
quality over the years.
La Vecchia Dispensa produces Balsamic Vinegar of Modena IGP and Balsamic Vinegar of Modena DOP, according to the European regulations. It hands down with pride the most demanded traditional homemade products, in a familiar dimension.
From 2002 the family business has also been certified by ICEA for biological process and produces organic Balsamic Vinegar of Modena IGP as well as traditional jams and preserves with seasonal fruit.
The careful selection of grape musts and the aging in precious wooden barrels are also reflected in the choice of luxury packagings. La Vecchia Dispensa brand is always recognizable by the craftsmanship and quality of its products: each bottle is a unique truly handmade product. The international reputation achieved by the company over the time is attested by its selected customers scattered across the continents.
