    Our host was amazing and super knowledgeable! She not only explained to us the history and production methods of Balsamic Vinegar but also showed us how each method could be used and enjoyed differently. She included wine and olive oil in her training as well to help us relate to categories we were more familiar with. As a former Tequila Ambassador myself I truly appreciated her passion and attention to all details making our experience unforgettable. Highly recommended!
