Who we are – Enter the community

  • We are born in Italy, proudly drinking Italian from all the corners of the world. Most of us are actually not living in Italy at the moment and with the Covid emergency, we have been missing for a while (and we probably will not be back soon ☹)
  • We are of Italians origin, passionately exploring our ancestors’ culture through the taste
  • We are global citizens, Italian in our hearts and not in our blood, daydreaming of a glass of wine surrounded by vineyards or an aperitivo at the sunset in front of the sea

Why to follow us:

  • You will increase your Italian passion and knowledge of the authentic Italian products
  • You will travel with us all around Italy (and you will discover the best places to experience the Italian flavor also abroad)
  • You will learn about ingredients, traditions, craftmanship

Get as curious as you want: many of us are Beverage Industry Pros and we will answer your curiosities!

Andiamo a prendere l’aperitivo? Offro io!
Ti va un caffe’? o meglio un cappuccino?
Mi puo’ fare una spremuta d’arancia rossa di Sicilia?
Che ne dici di un Negroni?
Non vedo l’ora di degustare quel Brunello di Montalcino del 2015
Un altro giro, per favore!
