About Italesse

Italesse’s headquarters are based in Trieste, Italy near Venice in “the land of Made in Italy.”  After its establishment in 1979, Italesse soon noticed a lack of professional elements designed to support the image and the sales of well-established brands in the complex market of beverages. The company now serves top brands like Moët & Chandon, Absolut, Veuve Cliquot, Laurent-Perrier, G.H. Mumm, Banfi, and Antinori as well as the Maîtres Cuisiniers de France (MCF).
