The artisan who made it
At Italyabroad.com we like to think that we discover and then import Italian gems from small, little known, yet dedicated, Italian producers. We then make them available to all our customers and by tasting them, you will embark on a fantastical journey through the real flavours of Italy. We love travelling the length of Italy looking for unknown producers and wine and food and bring back with us.
