NZ Importer of fine Italian Wines since 1989

Sapori D’Italia Import Ltd is the result of the passion for Italian wines and food of Carlo, Marco and Adriana. We long ago noticed the possibility of enriching the tasting experience of New Zealanders with the addition of the best products sourced from the North and South of Italy.

We are looking for wines that represent the history of the land and the journey of the passionate people behind them. This is the best way to appreciate wines and in particular Italian wines.

Thousands of years of continous refining food and wine have marked Italian history and they created a world beating range of tasting experiences inextricably linked to the territory where they originated.

There are more than 500 listed indigenous grape varieties in Italy and only a small share has a commercial distribution and are exported.

Our mission is to introduce NZ to the wealth of history and sensory experience linked to Italian wines hoping this will help to strengthen the vinous and gastronomic richness of our customers and of our new home New Zealand.
