Bringing La Dolce Vita To Belgium: Burgio Vino E Gastronomia Launches New Location

GENK, Belgium – Burgio Vino e Gastronomia, a leading importer and retailer of fine Italian wines, food, and delicacies in Belgium, is thrilled to announce the opening of its new location in Genk. Driven by a passion for quality and customer service, Burgio Vino e Gastronomia aims to make la dolce vita accessible to Belgian consumers through its unparalleled selection of authentic Italian products.

A Passion for Quality

“Our goal has always been to provide our customers with the full Italian experience, right here in Belgium,” said owner Fabio Burgio. “At our new Genk location, we’re able to offer an even wider range of delicious Italian imports while maintaining our high standards for freshness and quality. Whether you’re looking for the perfect Italian wine, ingredients to cook up an Italian feast, or giftable delicacies, you’ll find it all here.”

Carefully Curated Wine Selection

The product range at the new Burgio location spans over 200 Italian wines, including popular varietals like Chianti, Montepulciano, and Soave as well as harder-to-find options from small, family-owned wineries. Burgio Vino E Gastronomia sources its wines directly from producers across Italy’s winemaking regions, carefully vetting each one.

“Our direct relationships with winemakers in Italy allow us to hand-select exceptional wines that showcase the diversity and artisanship of Italian wine,” explained Burgio.

Authentic Italian Food Products

In addition to wines, Burgio stocks its shelves with imported pastas, olive oils, balsamic vinegars, cookies, pestos, tomatoes, and other non-perishable Italian grocery items. Refrigerated cases house fresh deli products like mozzarella di bufala and ricotta as well as Italian meats such as prosciutto, mortadella, and salami. Burgio also offers gift baskets and corporate gift options containing its gourmet products.

An Immersive Italian Experience

Rounding out the Italian experience, customers can find imported digestifs like grappa, amaretto, and limoncello along with Italian teas, espressos, and other beverages. Burgio provides tasting samples of many products so customers can experience them first-hand.

“We want our customers to feel like they’ve been transported to Italy when they visit our store,” said Burgio. “The sights, sounds, aromas, flavors – it’s all meant to immerse you in the Italian lifestyle. Our knowledgeable staff is always here to provide pairing recommendations or suggest new products too.”

Commitment to Quality Suppliers

Burgio takes care to ensure it works exclusively with reliable suppliers and producers who meet its high-quality standards. The company has cultivated partnerships with small family-run operations as well as larger Italian brands over its decade in business.

“Sourcing authentic Italian products directly from local producers has been a cornerstone of our business from day one,” noted Burgio. “It guarantees our customers receive the real thing – not some poor imitation.”

Bringing La Dolce Vita to Genk

The company’s unwavering commitment to quality has earned it a reputation as one of the premier Italian food and wine importers in Belgium. Its previous location in Antwerp developed a loyal following of customers seeking hard-to-find Italian wines and gourmet products. With expanded space in Genk, Burgio is positioned to introduce more Belgian consumers to the flavors of Italy.

“We’re excited to bring a little dolce vita to this new neighborhood,” said Burgio. “Our vision is to help people experience the passion of real Italian cuisine and wine culture authentically. We think customers will appreciate having these imported treasures from Italy available locally here in Genk.”

More Than Just Retail

In addition to retail sales, the new shop has space for corporate events, team-building activities, wine tastings, cooking classes, and other experiences. Burgio aims to become a community hub where Belgian and Italian cultures intersect.

“For us, food and wine are so much more than sustenance – they represent comfort, joy, and connection,” explained Burgio. “If we can bring people together to savor the flavor of life like Italians do, then we’ve succeeded.”
