The project

Adopt a grapevine from the "Acetaia Castelli" farm in Rio Saliceto (Italy) and receive your flavours of Modena and ReggioEmilia at home. Danilo will take care of your adoption and take its picture. You will also be able to download the adoption certificate, and if you wish, plan your visit to the farm. You do not enter into any long-term commitment: Although your adoption will be renewed automatically, you will always be informed in advance and may decide to cancel your adoption at any time as long as the preparation has not yet begun.

What do you adopt?

You adopt a grapevine from our farm in Rio Saliceto (Italy). When placing the adoption you can choose a name which we will use to identify your grapevine. Balsamic vinegar is a top product of the Italian cuisine. There is evidence of Lambrusco vines in our lands that go back more than 2000 years, and many more have been found in the following centuries. Lambrusco grapes have roots in the history of our land and in the popular culture. Our traditional and historical products received national and international recognition from experts of worldwide cuisine. The research for authenticity and quality are intrinsic in everything we produce. The purpose of our efforts is not a mere economic interest. Our fields are not certified with the EU organic label, but the production system we use to make balsamic vinegar is. In other words, during the process the product does not come into contact with any chemicals, the machinery is thoroughly washed after each operation and, in general, follows the rules of the organic production regulations. Included in the box you will find the two iconic products of our region: a bottle of Traditional Balsamic vinegar from Modena PDO made by us and a slice of Parmigiano Reggiano PDO made by the Caseificio Sociale Castelazzo. We have a very good relationship with the dairy, we are only 5km apart, and share the same drive for quality, a love for the land and belonging to CrowdFarming! Your adoption is NaN years old and its maximum lifespan is 30 years. For as long as you want to keep your adoption, and we can continue taking care of it, you can renew year after year. If your adoption stops producing for any reason, we will replace it with another, and guarantee you the delivery from the production of other units.

What will you receive?

Each season we will send you a box with: 1 x__ Traditional Balsamic Vinegar from Modena PDO __(100ml, bottle) 1 x __Parmigiano Reggiano cheese PDO__ matured minimum 30 months (500g, vacuum packed) Acetaia Castelli's __Traditional Balsamic Vinegar from Modena__: a traditional Italian product, aged for a minimum of 12 years in barrels of different types of wood and made from a single ingredient, grape must. Characterised by a long-lasting, intense aroma with a pleasant, harmonious acidity. Well-balanced sweet-and-sour flavour and consistent density. The __Parmigiano Reggiano__ matured for at least 30 months by Caseificio Sociale Castelazzo: characterised by a golden-yellow rind and a straw-coloured centre; fragrant, delicate and a tasty flavour. Lactose-free. The products in this package form a perfect combination, given their common origin, which is Reggio Emilia and Modena. We recommend cutting the Parmigiano Reggiano into pieces and pouring a few drops of Traditional Balsamic Vinegar from Modena on top. They can be used on their own: Traditional Balsamic Vinegar goes very well with meat and mature cheeses. Parmigiano Reggiano can be enjoyed just like that or grated over a rich risotto or first courses. Traditional Modena Balsamic Vinegar can be stored for 10 years in a cool, dark place. Vacuum-packed Parmesan cheese keeps perfectly for 180 days in the refrigerator at between 4 and 8 degrees Celsius.

Why should you adopt?
Know who, how and where your food is produced. Source your food in a conscious, direct and consistent manner.
Buying without intermediaries allows the producer to obtain better prices. This helps generate better jobs and social standards in rural areas.
When you adopt something, you allow the producer to ensure the sale at a fixed price and to produce on demand. This also avoids wasting food that is grown without being sold.
It supports producers who strive for environmentally friendly packaging and cultivation practices.
