After years of research, passion and study in wine and food, we come on random circumstances(as often happens in life) to create and manage the PAPPOSILENO.
For those who like me, for years, has cultivated taste and good food the beginning of an adventure pursued for a long time. Finally a place where bringing together and provide years of knowledge and food practices, thousands of samples on tastings, hundreds of wineries and producers, many food stories, men and lands.
Trying through food and wine to discover the world, telling about men and cultures, without the arrogance of the masters or the arrogance of the teacher's pet, but overtly, by returning to food and wine the role of daily food.
Quality of life. Everyone talks about but only few can hit the mark.
Often remains just a way of saying without any meaning.
I believe that good food and to meet up around the table, daily venue, to be overtly shared between family and friends, is the best investment to improve the quality of our life.
And now something about me.

Life is a grape marinated in mills of the world, and it says here, for the benefit of those who live, that the pain is useless, and the wine brief. Carlos Oliveirax
