Acetaia La Bonissima
Meet the Di Pietri family.
Meet the Di Pietri family. Since the beginning of the 1900s, they have kept the traditional family methods and recipes used for the production of Balsamic Vinegar of Modena IGP. Franco and Donatella De Pietri are heirs to this precious tradition, and they have honourably maintained the production of Balsamic Vinegar of Modena IGP at the Acetaia La Bonissima vinegar distillery. Acetaia La Bonissima vinegar distillery is located in Casinalbo at the foot of the Appennines and just seven kilometres from the centre of Modena that is the territory of the grapevines that have been used for centuries for the production of wine must for Balsamic Vinegar of Modena IGP.
The traditions, environment and philosophies of the company are the basis for the trademark logo of Acetaia La Bonissima. The statue of a woman was erected in the middle of Modena during the thirteenth century as a memorial. The small statue seems to represent a lady who, according to some, held a balance as a symbol of the exactness of weights, measurements and the superior quality of goods. Others claim that in a period of great famine which struck Modena, a noblewoman guaranteed the survival of the poor by donating grain and supplies in large quantities. ‘La Bonissima’, as she is known by Modena’s people, has since become one of the most important and beloved symbols of the city.
