Villa Gabriella dates back to the mid 1800’s with a family owned retail shop in Greve in Chianti, in the heart of Tuscany where customers were served the highest quality meat & poultry products. Great, great grandson Paolo built the tradition of excellence his forefathers established when in the 1980’s he added local Tuscan specialties including wine, extra virgin olive oil, truffles & cheeses. The products were distributed to fine restaurants in Italy & Europe.
The family later purchased land in the heart of the Chianti Classico area in Tuscany. Named in honor of his mother, Villa Gabriella is poised on a hill embraced by olive groves & ancient vineyards from the 15th century. The hamlet was restored to its original architecture, the fruits of its vineyard & olive groves produced exceptional quality oil & wine in limited artisanal batches.
Over the years family & friends including Consuelo shared delicious food & wine together at Villa Gabriella. Consuelo lived in Italy & worked for over 10 years in various consumer product categories of “Made In Italy”. Throughout the many years of international travel for both work & pleasure, she always dreamed of sharing the authentic quality, healthy food she truly enjoyed while living in Italy.
Together with their partners, thanks to the group’s diverse & complimentary professional backgrounds, an insatiable interest in food & wine and respect for authentic ingredients inspired them to create the Villa Gabriella brand.
We are passionate in finding & sharing some of the best of Made In Italy. We are enamored with small production, artisan-crafted foods made with pride. We enjoy learning their history & their unique characteristics as it enhances the pleasure one receives from it.
We believe people can enjoy delicious food & wine without compromising their health or overall wellness. The decision to offer foods with a healthier alternative led to a commitment to offer certified organic products from Italy. We collaborate with partners dedicated to growing, harvesting & producing natural & certified organic products.
We hope you enjoy our products with as much pleasure as we have in creating them for you!
