Italia del Gusto Tasting: Ponti Balsamic Vinegar

Italia del Gusto Tasting: Ponti Balsamic Vinegar

Join us in our olive oil department on the second floor from 12-3 p.m. on Saturday, March 4, for a complimentary tasting of balsamic vinegar from Modena by Ponti.

Giovanni Ponti, more commonly referred to as “Giovanni dell Aceto” (“Giovanni of the vinegar”), started making his own balsamic vinegar. Today, his impeccable taste and high standard of quality lives on in the brand’s renowned wine and balsamic vinegars from the region of Piemonte.

Italia del Gusto is a consortium of more than 30 Italian producers who share our value: bring the best of Italy to the world. From pasta to prosciutto to Prosecco, each high-quality product offers a taste of regional Italian tradition. The producers are both small-scale and well-known (who hasn't enjoyed a bowl of Barilla penne?), giving the family-run companies a chance to share their local culinary heritage, artisanal skills, and flavors with new audiences.

All month long, we are featuring these items in our marketplace with complimentary tastings! Learn more about Italia del Gusto.
