It was back in February 10th of 1984 when Abraham started his own business; operating a grocery shop: Abraham’s Mini Market in the heart of Xaghra
Abraham as a Wholesaler
Abraham started his journey in wholesaling around Gozo in September 1991
Abraham’s Holiday Farmhouses
It was in 1997 that Abraham decided to refurbish his 300 year old grandparents’ houses and turn them into luxurious holiday rentals in Gozo, nestled within the charming village of Xaghra.
Abraham expanded operations in Xewkija, by opening a new retail outlet offering mainly gourmet food and beverage, under the brand name Vini e Capricci.
Ogygia was introduced
Ogygia has epitomised the authentic taste of true Gozitan flavours. The variety of products from foods and traditional sweets, to preserves has never failed to satisfy our clients. The main objective of the firm is to put local products at par with imported premium foods, stressing the point that local products are as good as foreign imports.
Abraham’s as Sole Importer and Distributor
As soon as Abraham became a Sole Importer and Distributor, the Warehouses and Offices within the same area of Vini e Capricci were opened, establishing in-house departments.
The Whole Concept was launched
More than a shop, Abraham wanted a multi-sensory and immersive experience. Vini e Capricci has undergone a refurbishment with exciting additions to the existing offer. Taking culinary theatricals to the new level, the Deli counter has ben extended by an impressive 15 metres to allow a spectacular display. A butchery area and demonstration kitchen are also part of the design. An elegant in-store café and a more substantial offer is provided by Vinoteca Livio Felluga; delivering a new concept in dining and Gianfranco Berta Lounge dedicated to the appreciation of the digestif.
