About our Bottega
Bottega 1900 was born from the idea of creating an Organic Italian old style grocery shop (called bottega) online, where customers could find the best of the best artisan products Italy has to offer.
We are a family owned and run business based in the Northern Beaches, Sydney and formed by Alice (mum), Enea (dad) and our little bub, who is the CEO! We want to transmit to our son the principles and traditions we were raised by our families, which include, but not limited to, eating habits and using genuinely made products for personal care. We are both Italian and our families come from different regions. Enea’s family is from the south while Alice’s family is from the north. We grew up with the love for good food and we followed the Mediterrenean Diet‘s main principles: good produce genuinely grown and/or raised (organic), simple dishes, balanced diet where vegetal proteins and fats are preferred rather than animal ones.
We love food, cooking and eating well so we were always in the search of good products that had those traditional tastes, flavours and smells. We were looking for these characteristics even in simple products like pasta, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, tomato passata but unfortunately something was always missing, those flavours from our childhood were not there.
