Our Story

Why is it so hard to find real artisan Italian food and wine in the UK? This is the question that started our journey that led to the creation of Lento of London.

Our mission is to source from small-scale artisan producers who share a similar belief to us in that food and wine should be produced responsibly, without mass mechanical intervention, keeping traditional methods alive, whilst supporting the local community and the environment.

After painstaking research and many tastings on location at the producer's farms and vineyards, we have curated a selection of truly outstanding products that really showcase the best of what Italy can offer.

Organic and Biodynamic

Our products are made as mother nature intended with the greatest respect for the environment we live in. Our food and wines are natural, grown without chemicals and painstakingly nurtured by our farmers resulting in mouthwatering, delicious and flavoursome products.

Small Scale Artisan Producers

Our farmers have been carefully selected because of their unique use of traditional and natural methods and the high quality of their produce. The small, family-run farms we source from only produce food and wines sustainably preferring quality over quantity.

Honest Wines

The wines we offer are not to be found anywhere else in Britain. The vineyards we source from only produce a few thousand bottles every year so not only are our wines rare, they are of the highest quality with an honest price tag.
