Allocated Specialties delivers unique high quality goods from Italy in both gift boxes and an ever-changing series of collections. We connect independent, artisanal producers in Italy directly to the American consumer. We deliver affordable luxury to your home or business so we can all be vivendo il signo, living the dream.
Discover Wine Country Through Food
We found the good stuff! Connect to small producers from Italy’s wine country by enjoying what we import from the other side of the vineyard. These unique items are not available in most stores. Single-estate extra virgin olive oils, specialty pastas, balsamic vinegars, rare honeys, and boutique Tuscan and Sicilian juices grace our gift boxes we so carefully assemble. This is the hard to find, high quality products usually only tasted at the winery with the makers. Our boxes are in limited quantity due to the seasonality of our products. Yes, this means we guarantee we will run out of products shown here and will be consistently offering new boxes as we gather them.
As they say in Italy, “Those who sleep don’t catch any fish.” Chi dorme non piglia pesci.
Explore Italy’s Small Culinary Gems
Learn about each of our select producers from Italy. They each have beautiful stories to share about their sustainable agriculture practices, family traditions, fine-tuned processes, and charming Italian appetites for life. Stay tuned as we share more producer profiles and refresh our selections of their seasonal delicacies. Be the first to know what specialties we import next!
Connect. Enjoy. Share.
From the Other Side of the Vineyard
Allocated Specialties began with a simple mission; bring the artisanal quality foods that were available at estate wineries to the United States. After 20 years in the wine distribution and restaurant business, three friends discovered this need while on several tours of wineries throughout France, Italy and Spain. In 2020, these friends began importing single-estate Extra Virgin Olive Oils in small quantities, along with pastas, jams, honey, and vinegars. These culinary delights are available in gift boxes that transport you to the other side of the vineyard, one taste at a time.
