Mr. D'Ercole knowledge of wine and about each vineyard was AMAZING!! If you're looking for a great night and truly wish to learn about wine this group is one of a kind. From now on this is the only place I will be taking my friends and family.

Italyabroad.com was founded in 2003 in response to a lack of quality Italian wine and food. As soon as Andrea (the founder) landed in the UK noticed that Italian products available were not the ones he was used to when grwoing up in Italy.
From wine to food, Andrea could not find the quality he was used to and coming from a wine making family, he decided to embark in a journey to source quality Italian wine and food from small Italian, artisan producers: Italyabroad.com’s mission is to discover and import Italian gems from small, little known, yet dedicated, Italian wineries and artisans.
All our products are authentic and of the highest quality and made using the best, natural ingredients and respecting the environment; none of our product contains palm oil or preservatives, we believe in a healthy living and eating and drinking well is essential for a long and healthy life. We do not import industrially made products or so called "Italian sounding" food.
Since starting in 2003, Italyabroad.com has been the recipient of several awards.
