Italyabroad.com is an Italian wine and food specialist importer, and our wholesale division has been helping hotels, restaurants and retailers since 2003. We are based in Leeds, but we supply the whole of the country and outside the UK.
We started in 2003 as a wine importer and wholesaler and slowly expanded into food, all made from small producers, of the highest quality, not available in supermarkets, and as a recognition of our effort, we were, for our wine division, awarded the "Best Newcomer Wine Merchant Award ” in 2012 from the UK Sommelier Association, the only year we entered the competition, with the following motivation:
“Key to its success was not just its ability to deliver four impressive Golds from a relatively small overall entry, but to deliver genuinely interesting wines at excellent prices. Just look at the stylistic spread of the four Golds: a Chianti, a Lagrein from the Alto Adige and a fabulous pair of Sardinians (a white Sussinku and a Critics Choice-winning Red Cannonau). This is exactly the sort of company that restaurants everywhere should be approaching to add interest to their list.”
And we are not just about award winning wines but also first class service, this is one of our clients’ feedback “Exceptional wines from artisan producers (who are clearly handpicked!) at exceptional prices (our customers are delighted with the Prosecco, and so are we!). Prompt and reliable service!” Cynthia Schaeffer | General Manager | The George Hotel & Brasserie | Buckden | Cambs
But we are not just wine or food, we are also Italian craft beers and spirits, from limoncello to gin, and support our clients with marketing activities, from wine list to advertising material, to staff training, when our clients succeed, we succeed.
