Balsamic Vinegar IGP and DOP
1605 Giuseppe and Francesco Maria Giusti are registered in the first list of commercial activities, created by Cesare d-Este, the newly crowned Duke of Modena.
1700 The Giusti production grows through the acquisition of new casks and the purchase of others already producing balsamic vinegar from families of Modena.
1861 Giuseppe Giusti brings the A3 barrel to the Italian National Fair in Florence, authorized by the Royal family, and is awarded a gold medal for his “90 years old balsamic vinegar”.
1880 The first “Commercial Samples” of Giusti Balsamic Vinegar are sent by post, anticipating its future diffusion throughout Italy and Europe.
1929 Giusti becomes the official supplier of the King of Italy, the Savoia family, who grants the right to add the Royal Seal of Approval to Giusti products.
1950 The finest and oldest balsamic vinegars are bottled in smaller glasses, anticipating the Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena DOP.
