ABOUT GIUSEPPE GIUSTI
Creating an exceptional balsamic vinegar depends on the competence, experience and attention to detail and the lengthy period of aging. Proud of a know-how which has been refined over its 400 years of family history, Giusti combines both its respect for tradition with a sense of local corporate responsibility and a modern and sustainable production philosophy.
HANDED DOWN FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION
Represented today by Claudio Francesca and Luciano who lead the company today, the history of the Giusti family is inextricably linked to the local area. For centuries, the production of balsamic vinegar had an exclusively private character, within the family, and it was destined not only for private consumption but also for the most important gifts. Great importance was therefore attributed to the private acetaia, considered a substantial part of the family heritage. The master vinegar maker was a family member, someone who had learned the secrets of the discipline from when he was a child. An ancient history that still today lives on, handed down from generation to generation.
