In 1605 Giuseppe and Francesco Maria Giusti registered the first list of commercial activities in Modena. In 1700 The Giusti production grew so much, they acquired new casks from other businesses already producing balsamic vinegar in Modena. After participating at International Fairs accumulating awards and medals, in 1920 Giusti started to bottle their balsamic vinegars in the only bottles locally available, the ones for the wine “Lambrusco” aka "Champagnotta”.
Following centuries of an oral tradition, Giuseppe Giusti was among the first to write down the rules for obtaining a "perfect Balsamic Vinegar". His text, written down in 1863 on the occasion of the Modena Agricultural Fair, teaches us that the choice of grapes, the quality of the casks, and time are the fundamental ingredients. The quality of the raw materials, the long aging time required, and above all the availability of casks that have been aging Balsamic Vinegar for centuries already are the elements that still make Balsamic Vinegar Giusti so precious.
