Enoteca Sileno is the trading name of L. Di Santo Pty Ltd, arguably the most established and respected importer, distributor and wholesaler of authentic, artisanal, Italian food and wine products in Australia.
Founded in Melbourne in 1953 by Luigi Di Santo, entrepreneur and pioneer of the Italo-Australian community, the company has been entrusted as the Australian home of some of the great gastronomic brands of Italy, as well as many artisan producers of note.
Today, under the direction of Luigi’s daughter Rosemary and her husband John Portelli, along with a dedicated, passionate team, Enoteca Sileno continues to set the standard for the distribution of Italian food and wine in Australia.
In addition to the Import Office and Wholesale Division, the business also includes a Retail Showroom and Scuola di Cucina Cooking School.
Enoteca Sileno has distributors throughout Australia and New Zealand, all of whom share our passion for delivering quality Italian food and wine to Australian tables.
It was a fun day. I knew how to make pasta but could never master filled pasta. The little tricks that I was shown are of great value. The chef and staff were excellent and the food and wine perfect ending to a great day. Thank you.
We had great fun learning how to make pizza dough and how to roll the dough balls. Loved tasting the parmigiano afterwards and hearing John's passion for traditionally prepared products.
