VENTUNO EXPERIENCE BOXES
WHAT DO THE EXPERIENCE BOXES CONTAIN?
Ventuno Experience Boxes contain a combination of strictly Italian only finest food and wine products, carefully selected and matched to offer an exciting tasting experience following the criteria of authentic Italian regional cuisine. Inside each box you will find a guide outlining the uniqueness of each product, details about the manufacturer and some tips on how to taste and match the products to get the best out of your experience.
WHY ARE VENTUNO BOXES ORDERED BY REGION?
Italian cuisine offers a range of flavours and colours that vary with the territory of origin. At Ventuno we love to tell the wonders of the Italian territory through its excellence and local culinary specialities. For this reason, we created three experience boxes for each region, which contain three typical moments of Italian gastronomic culture: Aperitif, Dinner and Dessert.
HOW DO YOU SELECT YOUR PRODUCTS?
The regional products that Ventuno offers are carefully researched among the artisan laboratories and local producers throughout the Italian territory. The pairings are created by a team of experts in order to offer, for each Box, an exciting tasting experience that reflects the regional authentic tradition. All producers are selected according to the highest quality criteria, the sustainability of their production and transformation processes and for the attention to details in the design of their packaging. In order to be selected by Ventuno for the regional boxes, producers must be located and strictly produce in that specific Italian region.
WHERE DO YOUR PRODUCTS COME FROM?
The products come from agricultural and agri-food companies located throughout the Italian territory. The products that Ventuno offers tell the story of unique producers who cultivate the fruits of their land with love and passion, and who promote the quality and authenticity of their products without compromise.
SHIPPING AND DELIVERIES
IS IT POSSIBLE TO BUY MULTIPLE BOXES TO BE DELIVERED TO DIFFERENT ADDRESSES?
Sure! Once you have selected your boxes, proceed with the order and you can indicate the desired shipping address.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO INSERT A PERSONALIZED MESSAGE?
To add your personalized message for the recipients of your Box simply add your message in the NOTES section. We will print your personalized card and insert it in the box.
CAN I CANCEL A CONFIRMED ORDER?
As long as you are within 24 hours from order confirmation and the order is yet to be processed and handed to the courier, you can cancel the order by sending an email to email@example.com
DO YOU DELIVER INTERNATIONALLY?
Yes, we currently ship to Italy and Europe. For shipping to countries outside the EU, contact our team at firstname.lastname@example.org
HOW DOES THE SHIPMENT WORK?
Shipments are made by our international courier, depart from Monday to Friday and are delivered to the delivery address indicated by the customer when sending an order. We don’t deliver to P.O. boxes.
HOW MUCH DOES DELIVERY COST?
Shipping costs are calculated automatically based on the shipping address and are always indicated in your shopping basket. When the customer selects a destination country other than Italy, the amount is automatically updated. For shipping to non-EU countries and to know about any customs restrictions, contact us at email@example.com.
WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I FIND A DAMAGED PRODUCT IN MY BOX?
If the box is damaged externally we suggest you to sign with reserve. Subsequently, if one or more products inside the box are damaged, contact the Ventuno customer service team immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org, including photos and a description of the damaged product/s.
I PLACED AN ORDER BUT I PUT THE WRONG DELIVERY ADDRESS. WHAT SHOULD I DO?
Contact our customer service team immediately at email@example.com to communicate the exact address. If the box has already been shipped, unfortunately we will not be able to intervene as the courier cannot be stopped, so the package will have to be returned to the sender and redirected to the correct address (in this case additional shipping charges may apply for sending to the new address).
IS IT POSSIBLE TO CHECK THE STATUS OF THE SHIPMENT?
Of course! Upon confirmation of the order you will receive an email with the shipping information and a link to the page where you can follow the status of your shipment. If you have indicated a mobile number, you will also receive notifications related to shipping via text messages.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO RECEIVE MY ORDER?

CAN I BUY INDIVIDUAL PRODUCTS INSTEAD OF THE WHOLE BOX?
No. At the moment it is only possible to purchase the boxes in the predefined configurations. If you are interested in buying individual products, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Ventuno also offers a personalization service for companies and individuals whereby it is possible to buy in bulk and modify the content of the boxes according to the needs and budget available (minimum quantity required).
