Before the Green Revolution in the 1950s, Ancient Grains were the staple for bread, pastas, and dough. Back then, gluten sensitivity was practically unheard of.
In 2013, after seeing some of my own family members struggle with gluten intolerance, I decided to resurrect the Ancient Grains consumed by the Roman Legionnaires themselves.
Sicily’s elite grain provided vital energy for each Roman legionnaire trained to march 20 miles in 5 hours while carrying 60-100 lbs of gear! To accomplish this, each Roman legionnaire was provided a daily ration of 900 grams of grain (75% of their entire ration) almost this whole bag!
• AL DENTE PERFECTION in less than 10 minutes. It's how the Italians enjoy pasta, tender & crunchy at the same time (make sure you follow the directions on the package).
SERVE with Bolognese sauce, Papa Vince cherry tomato sauce or your favorite veggies sautéed in Papa Vince Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
It doesn’t matter what you buy from Papa Vince, all our products follow the same quality guidelines. This is what you can expect:
My family has been growing, harvesting and pressing its own Extra Virgin Olive Oil since 1935. Our orchards are located in Sicily, Italy.
Papa Vince entered the US market in March 2013. Since then, the excitement that our customers share daily through emails, phone calls and in social media has catapulted us to expand our tent beyond Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
In 2016 we decided to partner with local artisans in Sicily to bring to you, our customer, the highest quality possible pastas, tomato sauces, vinegars, sea salt, marmalades and coffee, all made in Sicily by locals with local products.
Papa Vince is a small family business. Our goal is to restore the joy of family and friends sitting around the table to enjoy an incredible meal - just like the ones Grandma used to make. Once you taste Papa Vince foods we are convinced you will become part of our family. It’s the Italian way – to make friends, with good food around the table.
Very good pasta
I love Busiate Tumminia macaroni from Papa Vince. Made from an ancient whole grain grown in Sicily, it lends itself to just about any kind of sauce. Although I have prepared it with about five or six different sauces, my favorite is a mixed, wild mushroom sauce. Deliziosa!!
It makes a difference to me to see a harvest date on an olive oil bottle. Once I saw the date on my Papa Vince olive oil bottle I happily cracked it open. Ahhh, the smell and then the pouring consistency
was delightful. I poured it over fresh salad leaves and warm pasta with garlic/basil/radiccio and I was in heaven. Thank you
Pure and clean tasting Lemon Olive Oil. Great product.
Finished the first bottle and bought 2 more.Thinking of buying 2 more before they run out. I never knew what real EVOO tasted like before as I always used the commercial store bought brands. And, I never knew about Harvest Dates, types of olives or that they were blended. What an education. I will never go back to using commercial oils. They can’t compare.
