L'Acetu Balaninu

Short supply chain

The magic of Corsican vinegar

Derived from a deep passion for wine, the story of Acetu Balaninu, brought to life by Catherine Pepe in Lozari, is one of inspiring transformation. Originally from the world of oenology, Catherine has always been drawn to the delights of taste and the rigor of a job well done.

After a radical change of life and a move to the enchanting island of Corsica, Catherine decided to embark on a new adventure: becoming a vinegar maker. Always guided by her love of good things and her demand for quality, she set about creating vinegar specialties that will delight the most discerning palates.

At Acetu Balaninu, each vinegar specialty is handcrafted using the traditional Orléans method. The precious oak barrels in which the vinegar is aged for several months play an essential role in the process. Catherine lets nature work its magic, while keeping a close eye on every step of the process.

Constant monitoring of the vinegar's evolution is essential. Catherine takes regular pH readings and frequently tastes to monitor the acetic fermentation and the taste qualities of the vinegar being formed. In this way, the acidity of the vinegar gradually increases to harmonize perfectly with the aromas of the wine.

Once the ideal balance has been reached, the vinegar is filtered to eliminate bacteria and guarantee its stability. It is then carefully bottled, using a semi-automatic bottling machine, before being corked and labelled. Each bottle of Acetu Balaninu represents the fruit of rewarded patience and unique craftsmanship.

Acetu Balaninu's vinegar specialties are an invitation to an unforgettable taste journey. Catherine invites you to discover and taste her creations, in the hope that they will delight your taste buds and transport you to the heart of Corsica's splendid Balagne region.
