Black Gold of Modena: DOP Balsamic Vinegar - Episode 61

If you’d like to experience DOP balsamic vinegar, known as the black gold of Modena, there’s no better way than to take a deep dive into one of the local family producers, or acetaia as they’re known in Italy: Acetaia Malagoli Daniele.
Sofia Malagoli has taken the family acetaia to a whole new level and her marketing savvy and outgoing personality have helped the Acetaia Malagoli Daniele (named after Sofia’s father) become one of the largest acetaie in the Modena area with roughly 800 barrels.
Today Sofia and I chatted all about her family's DOP balsamic vinegar business, how Sofia has marketed this business, and the recently published Black Gold of Modena book.
