Agriturismo Opera 02 in Modena
Agriturismo Opera 02 is a vineyard-strewn wine resort with stylish accommodation and a restaurant. It’s also the place to try traditional balsamic vinegar, a Modena speciality made from cooked must and aged for at least 12 years in barrels of different woods.
Proprietor Mattia Montanari has raised the bar for Lambrusco with his wines that display brilliant tension between fruit and structure, using Grasparossa grapes harvested early to reduce oxidation.
The rooms are set amongst the vineyards and are beautiful with stunning views. They were clean and well equipped. The family that run the hotel also produce high quality balsamic vinegar here and you can take a tour of their vinegar store as well as a winery and cellar.
Guests can enjoy a buffet breakfast each morning and the restaurant serves characteristic local dishes. Balsamic vinegar and Lambrusco wine can be sampled in the property’s cellars, with guided tasting tours available.
The staff are friendly and helpful. They have bikes available for guests to use and can give recommendations for local places to visit.
The resort is a short drive from Modena, which features numerous superb medieval and renaissance landmarks. The historic city of Maranello, home to Ferrari, is also just a short drive away. The gentle hills surrounding the resort are ideal for easy walks and bike rides. The hotel offers a range of relaxing spa and wellness facilities, including a sauna and Turkish baths.

Inspired by grower Champagne all wines are made using 100% estate fruit and secondary fermentations happen naturally (and slowly!) in the cellar, creating small, fine bubbles and deep viole notes in the wine. In fact, Lambrusco Grasparossa is their flagship wine and they chose to focus exclusively on this grape in their vineyards and winery, making it one of the very few producers that can claim a single DOC dedicated to this great variety.
