About Boccaccio SUPA IGA

About Us

To say Boccaccio Cellars is a family affair is in itself a bit of a understatement! Boccaccio Cellars did not at first start up as wine merchants, rather as suppliers of fresh bread, delivered to the swarms of Italian migrants who had arrived from Italy. This became a raging success and Tony and his brothers found that not only did people want fresh bread delivered, but also spaghetti, oil and (don't tell anyone!) the occasional bottle of grappa (better known as rocket fuel here in Australia!). Within ten years, there was a swarm of delivery drivers delivering food and wine around Melbourne.
Nearly forty years since Boccaccio was established, not much has changed. The only difference now is that we have our own bakers and we deliver Australia wide. Boccaccio has become one of Australia's leading wine merchants and you can regularly find our advertisements gracing the pages of 'The Australian' and 'The Age epicure'.

The Store

The difference between Boccaccio Cellars to many other of the myriad wine merchants in Australia is our physical presence. Established in 1963 and expanded in the subsequent years, we have a fully fledged store with a substantial liquor department, as well as a full meditteranean-influenced grocery, delicatessen, butcher, green grocer and bakery. We are not simply an online store with no physical stock acting as a 'wine-broker', we carry over 99% of the products listed in stock and pride ourselves on our supreme service including low prices and next day delivery.

The Staff

The real secret to success in any business are the people on the ground. Over fourty years after its inception, we remain a family operation with the business' founding members, Tony and Bruno D'Anna still very much the driving force behind it. Today, we have expanded both in terms of our own family and the workforce behind the business  but our family values and business ethics still remain as traditional as ever.

The Products

As the face of our business, our products are represenative of us. In any facet of the business, whether it be liquor or grocery, we endeavour to house the best selection of products from a variety of regions around the globe, with a strong emphasis on locally produced and organic foods where possible. The wines we house, are a culmination of a 40-year passon and each and every wine from current releases to our substantial back catalogue have been correctly cellared and temperature controlled.

The Mission

Our mission is simple. To our customers we aim to conduct our business in the most honest and transparent mode possible. We aim to house 99% of the wines we advertise and dispatch them within 24 hours of processing your credit card. When delays are expected, we will endeavour to contact you to ensure you are not left wondering. As always, you are welcome to raise any concerns arising over an order in the resolution center and we will respond ASAP.
With our pricing, we aim to provide our goods at the lowest possible permissable price and are always actively monitoring our competitors to ensure we remain competitive and current.

The Name

Why would wine merchants use the name Boccaccio?

Well, Boccaccio was born in a village called Certaldo, in the heart of the famous wine region, Tuscany. Throughout his life, wine was an integral part of his life and even when it was considered taboo by many Boccaccio in his writings used it as a metaphor to show not all things that are considered bad are bad and vice versa.

Who does not know that wine is a most excellent thing, if we may believe Cinciglione and Scolaio, while it is harmful to a man with a fever? Are we to say wine is wicked because it is bad for those who are feverish? Who does not know that fire is most useful and even necessary to mankind? And because it sometimes destroys houses, villages and towns, shall we say it is bad? Weapons defend the safety of those who wish to live in peace, but they also kill men, not through any wrong in them but through the wickedness of those who use them ill.  Giovanni Boccaccio, The Decameron, 

Our family history has for generations been involved in food and wine. In Italy, we harvested grapes from our own vineyards and used wine as the basis on which we survived.

Upon the families arrival to Australia, we chose the same path of food and wine and once again it encompasses everything we do in our lives.

It's well known that Boccaccio has a truly outstanding deli and great produce! However, it's the thoughtful and considerate service that also keeps me coming back. If you've ever purchased high quality deli items that are squished into a bag making them very off-putting and unpalatable when you return home - you won't find that here. At Boccaccio, the deli staff are trained correctly. They ask you about your preferences BEFORE they slice your smallgoods , check that you're happy and then proceed, mindful to provide what was requested. To me, it makes all the difference AND my purchase looks appetising when I return home! THANK YOU to the staff who provide such great service (it's appreciated although sometimes you may not hear it enough) and the management team who believe in helping and encouraging your teams to provide excellent customer service. It matters to the customer and it really does have a positive impact on your business.

I've been shopping here for years and every weekly visit is a pleasure, easy parking and always come home with something new to try, who needs to travel when you've got Boccaccio nearby! Jery and the team in the cheese deli have always accommodated and looked after me with my particular specialty cheese requirements, they see me coming and virtually start prepping my order, can't get better service than this anywhere. I'm a lifetime customer, in fact my elderly mother used to shop there on occasion for special items and take me along with her in the 60's 70's when I was just a tacker, I'm carrying on the tradition.

Ive always liked coming in here from time to time for some snacks, and I actually work nearby, and normally don’t mind if I get asked to show my bag at the counter when I’m buying something, as I can understand why. But today, the young lady at the counter was quite rude and said something along the lines of, show me your bag. I felt racially picked on as the way she said it felt like she thought I actually stole something from the store. She also spent too long looking inside my bag. I felt sad that we are still in a world like this where we are judged by the colour of our skin. I won’t be back, which is a shame because I really like the quality of products and the range you have here.

Glad i was recommended to go here. Best delicatessen in the area. Takes me 30 minutes to get there but at least I'm not driving 1 hour anymore. Sooo much cheese. Not a cheese lover but I buy a few when I go there

This is a supermarket....but not as you know it! AMAZING selection of cheeses and small goods. Where else can you get La Tur from Italy, truffled D'Affenois from France, Cachel blue from Ireland and 6 different varieties of prosciutto! Fresh wasabi and beluga caviar. Of course all the usual supermarket stuff from Coca Cola to toilet paper. The Italian wine selection is outstanding. Pretty good for others also. Worth a detour!
