IN CASTELVETRO THE NATURE HAS ITS OWN OLD PANTRY

Our story began four generations ago, when the Pelloni and Tintori families started aging Balsamic Vinegar in precious wooden casks. A sweet inheritance was prepared with love by our fathers and served as a dowry for each daughter.

We take care of all the characteristics of our product, right down to the tiniest detail. Sometimes this may seem superfluous or even obsessive but for us every piece is unique and deserves all our attention starting with the selection of raw materials right through to the packaging of the finished product. We have always done it in this way. Each of our products is our representation and can tell a story about us, our history and our family.

We always try to keep up with the time and to be innovative. Every year we create new products that go perfect with Balsamic Vinegar. Eventually La Vecchia Dispensa has invented modern eclectic recipes such as the first panettone with Balsamic Vinegar, a Balsamic and Parmigiano-Reggiano chocolate praline, and later a Balsamic Vinegar flavored sea salt.
