About us : Wine Importers
A Taste of Italy was founded in 2005 by Pasquale Cavaliere and his wife Christine Hewitt. Their purpose was to become a leading importer for medium to high quality Italian wines in Ireland.
The passion behind wine, the charm of the wineries and their traditions, the commitment and the patience behind every bottle, the beauty of each vineyard drive every day our mission:
Providing a unique quality product at a world class service to each of our customers.
To achieve the above we ensure the majority of our wines come from small, family run vineyards where quality is always considered to be far more important than quantity. Each of these suppliers has direct contact with Pasquale. Many of them have also come to see how their products are received in the Irish market. This touch of being able to introduce a producer into a restaurant creates a better familiarity with the product. This results in a higher ability to present the wines, in turn, to their clients.
Our Sales team also offer support with making wine lists.
Over the years we have experimented with another important Italian product – coffee.
In 2009 we began dealing with Moak coffee and at the beginning of 2012 after mutual agreement, we took over the agency for the Irish Territory.
As for the wine suppliers Moak is a “made in Italy” brand where quality is more important than quantity. The care for the selection of beans, as well as the single roasting system assure our clients the pleasure of a real Italian espresso, whether it is in a cafè, at home or in the office.
And remember “end your dinner with a memory….taste a Moak”.
