La Scoperta offers customers wines and foods from artisanal producers. “I wanted to bring a piece of the real Italy to Antwerp: full of passion, flavour and authenticity. We find these producers by reading about them or meeting them at trade fairs. I always visit them, to see how their products are made and what their story is. It is not just about the flavours of the region, it is also about the discovery and the experience of the flavours,” smiles Boets. “That is why our philosophy is: ‘Alla scoperta di antichi sapori’ (‘discovering authentic flavours’).” In the ‘enoteca’, people can taste artisanal wines and foods from different regions in Italy.
