Today is October 31. While many people are celebrating Halloween, we celebrate the birthday of our beloved Claudio! He taught us everything about the traditional balsamic vinegar and his story is the story of Acetaia Villa Bianca. Let’s start from the beginning: Claudio was born in Spilamberto, the balsamico home town. After attending classical studies he got a degree in Chemistry and taught this subject for 30 years.

Dopo gli studi classici si è laureato in chimica dedicandosi all’insegnamento.

In the laboratory.

He started taking an interest in balsamic vinegar since his childhood, when he enjoyed helping in pressing grapes and boiling must.

Il suo interesse per l’aceto balsamico risale alla fanciullezza quando aiutava nella pigiatura dell’uva e nella cottura del mosto.
