“Nero di Troia” wine from the Le Grotte winecellars of Foggia and the cooking of Domenico Cilenti are protagonists in Florence.

This is a tangible sign of an evolution that relates the capacity of producing quality without equal; the history, nature and culture of a territory, unique for its richness… Puglia.

Elisabetta Rogai seizes the moment and uses varied products in conjunction with her EnoArte; she lives them and transforms them into an evocative moment. She also uses thoughtful innovation, reflections of her thoughts, her curiosity and her eclecticism; the Garganic stone from Apricena on which she paints with wine, which she dominates, with grace and knowledge.

She makes it come alive, forms it with color and gives it a soul

Emotions are gathered in a glass of wine. A masterpiece of nature is born.
