The Amegilla story – Inspired by nature
Amegilla draws its name from the Blue-Banded bee (Amegilla cingulata) – a strikingly beautiful bee native to Australia and many other regions.
In the busy world of bees, the Amegilla bee is like no other. Iridescent turquoise-blue bands encircle a glossy black abdomen, while large green eyes survey the landscape.
Although Amegilla bees don’t produce honey, they play a vital role in the pollination of crops and wild plants.
Indeed, humankind is becoming increasingly aware of the importance of bees – including the Amegilla bee – in the well-being of our species.

From South Australia’s rolling wine country to the mountains of Switzerland, Rosie Russell has a deep attachment to the wine business born out of her passion for fine food and exceptional wines.
Amegilla was originally the name of one of her family`s prized wines, produced from the grapes of vintage vines growing near her farmhouse in South Australia.
After selling her boutique Australian winery in 2016, she and her 2 sons relocated to Switzerland and Amegilla was reborn. Amegilla is now the name and insignia of her Swiss venture – promoting the fine wines and spectacular artisanal foods of her adopted home through carefully curated luxurious gourmet gift boxes.
Rosie and her team, including her amazing General Manager Fabia Maddalena Müggler, sincerely hope you will enjoy our Amegilla boxes, and we thank you for your support.
