Paltrinieri’s Acetaia

1845. The origins.

Paltrinieri’s Acetaia history started in 1845 when, in the splendid courtyard, the Paltrinieri family began producing vinegar in the first barrels. A tradition that has been passed down to the present day with the production of the must necessary for the Acetaia. From the Trebbiano to the Lambrusco, all the vineyards used for production surround the villa, as the tradition requires.

‘900. The History

In 1920, thanks to the intuition of Matilde Bontempelli in marriage to Giannetto Paltrinieri, new batteries are started up which in the following decades will lead to an important production, determining the success of the vinegar factory.

Today. The legacy.

Today, it is Guido Paltrinieri who still performsthe ancient practices of transfers and refills in over 1,000 production barrels. This expertise has been passed down from generation to generation and has led Acetaia Paltrinieri products to be appreciated all over the world for their quality and compliance with production guidelines.
