Paul is an avid world traveler who has reveled in the food and wines of Italy, France and Russia as well as a majority of states in the USA. Food and wine hold the stories of any region’s local history, and exploring them as travelers is the key to understanding the culture. Food and wine also bring people together in story and time, creating bonds that last a lifetime.
