We love Italy. We love the scenery, the art and architecture, the passion generated by the smallest thing, the importance of family, the sheer love of life and most of all, the food and the wine. This is a country who understand the pleasures of the table and that is why, over the past few years, our buying focus has been firmly here.
Boasting more than 350 native grape varieties, along with a host of international varieties too, Italy arguably provides a greater breadth and depth of wines than anywhere else in the world. Taking into consideration the variations a single grape variety can display across a tightknit cluster of sub-regions, where the traditions of one village are at odds with those of the next village over, then you end up with a hugely detailed and at times complicated vinous mosaic. Where to start, and what to focus on is a challenge and every week brings exciting new discoveries across our tasting bench. We continue to expand and develop our offer and are hugely proud of our efforts.
We want to share our passion and the joy of discovery with you and to celebrate winning the 2020 Decanter Italian Specialist of the Year (following on from the same award in 2019), we are offering 20% off our entire range of Italian wines and spirits for a limited time only. This will allow you to travel North to South, tasting those odd and unusual wines from outside the main regions, which will hopefully capture your imagination the same way they captured ours.
Below is a selection of our favourites, while you can click the button underneath to browse our entire range of Italian wines and spirits. Please note this is a duty paid offer only. The discount applies to all Italian wines in our stores as well as our duty paid range online.
