Fattorie Giacobazzi produces six million bottles of balasamic vinegar per year.
The company was founded in 1988 by the Giacobazzi family, who, following the aforementioned acquisition, will retain the remaining 34 per cent stake of the company. Giacobazzi is the fifth largest player in the Italian Balsamic Vinegar of Modena
