Il Borgo del Balsamico


A Production of Excellence and an Exclusive Hospitality



A Place of Peace Where Nature Fuses with the History of Ancient Stones and Italian Gardens



Holding dear our traditional values while looking to the future. Letting nature inspire us every day. This is our vision. A simple easy way of recognizing our products, our colour code has long been a hit with customers.


Philosophy and Color Code



In deference perhaps to the Crotti family’s past in the fashion business, Il Borgo del Balsamico’s packaging shows off its products admirably. Original and esthetically pleasing, the packaging clearly communicates the different product types and how they should be used.


“Today it’s so important to give clear information to consumers. We are bombarded by information that doesn’t inform. It’s crucial that people be given the information they need to be able to choose. Being able to make choices means you can assess and grow your critical capability”, says Cristina Crotti, who is also in charge of the company’s product image.



The color code chosen by Il Borgo del Balsamico is as follows: yellow, orange and red for the balsamic condiments and aubergine for the Traditional Balsamic Vinegar with its three distinctive categories. Colors are a universal language needing no translation. The difference product characteristics are communicated easily and simply.



The colored caskets are perfect containers. Carefully crafted, they are solid but luxurious, their double lining designed to protect the precious bottles and their content. Each bottle is sealed by hand in the traditional way with original binding material and sealing wax that is stamped while the wax is still warm.


Uniqueness - Passion and Dedication



Undisputed quality is best communicated through a clear, transparent and direct message. The approach is instinctive; the language direct and modern yet refined. Cristina adds: “We package our products as if they were fragrances, their containers helping to express their special characteristics. Packaging is like a garment - easy for the end consumer to read.



I am convinced that Italy’s fine food products are unrivalled the world over and that it’s our duty to convey that message. While we steer clear of silly rhetoric, we take care to make a clear distinction between our products and vulgar imitations. This must be the approach if we are to assert Italy’s singular excellence in this field.



In this way, our customer, who is a lover of fine foods, will broaden his critical appreciation and discover the intricate qualities of a product that is still often considered a bit mysterious”. Each item is unique, never quite the same as the previous one. Each takes with it into the world all the dedication and infinite care that have gone into the long process that culminates in one of the miracles of Italy’s tradition of fine foods.


Awards and Mentions



Although a young business, Il Borgo del Balsamico was awarded two major prizes even before its products were sold on the market. The first was in 1996 for a battery of casks. This was followed by other firsts in the competitions held every year by the Confraternity of Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Reggio Emilia.



In the Repubblica of 2015 EXPO, we were showcased among the 100 examples of excellence and distinction in the “Beautiful Italy” exhibit Sharing our achievements with our customers - the people we have to thank for our success!


The Borgo Notebook



“First and foremost The Borgo Notebook is simply great fun to produce. It sums up the mutual respect between us at Il Borgo del Balsamico and our partners”, says Cristina. “It’s become an annual publication”, she adds.


Selected chefs who have chosen our products are invited to provide a recipe in which they use one of our balsamic vinegars. The recipes are collected and published as ‘The Borgo Notebook’”.

Our Intuition



We let our intuition guide us, I can’t imagine a world in black-and-white, with no music or fragrances.


We invite you into our home to be part of an age-old tradition where hospitality is a given. Take time out to savour a magical place imbued with the peace and tranquillity of nature’s unchanging rhythms.


Le Dimore del Borgo



The three guestrooms in our historic listed farmhouse speak of our traditional way of life. It’s a lifestyle made up of the quiet steady pace of places where people make a living from the land. It’s the silence of the countryside and the measured pace of age-old production methods. It’s also an Italian garden and a huge park beyond, home to wild flowers, hares and roe deer.


Borgo del Balsamico is appreciated by visitors from all over the world.



Our guestrooms are reserved for visitors who want to share our beautiful countryside and the ancient peasant traditions out of which came the famous balsamic vinegar that graced the table of kings. We have taken great care to furnish each room in typical Italian style, combining ancient and modern furniture and fittings. Each room is redolent with who we are and where we come from.


Each room is as different and unique as you are.
