Food Tour: Parmesan, Balsamic, Red Wine, delicious lunch, transport

Bologna Trip Overview

This tour is a fantastic opportunity to discover how some of our food specialities are produced. It’s very interesting to learn all the phases of the parmesan cheese production. This tour finishes first with the visit to the storage, where hundreds of wheels sleeps and then with a tasting of 24months aged Parmigiano.

The Balsamic Vinegar is called also the Black Gold, because it needs a long and patience process of min. 12 years! A tasting of three different aged balsamic vinegar finishes this tour. You will continue to taste the Vinegar during the lunch: tortelloni home made, meat with potatoes, dessert… all with drops of Balsamic Vinegar.

The wine production of this area is very important: the visit starts with a guided tour inside the private Museum of Wine Traditions, and it continues into the cellars where bottles today stay and finishes with a tasting of 3 different wines.
