A native of London, England, Phillip Silverstone has lived in the Philadelphia area since 1977. His career between 1977 and 2009 was involved with the wine world. His initial foray into wine was managing a wine store in New Jersey and specializing in the “upcoming” regions of Napa and Sonoma in the USA. From 1981 until 1995 Phillip was president of a wine import company in the U.S. During this period he sourced, imported, marketed and distributed limited production wines from around the world, specializing in German and Australian selections.

Phillip’s promotion and marketing background (fashion and advertising industry during London’s Swinging 60′s) once again surfaced Stateside when he became involved with Pan Am’s onboard wine tastings above the Atlantic. Phillip then introduced “Tastings in the Sky” in-flight wine and food programmes for Virgin Atlantic Airways. Passengers in first class (Virgin’s “Upper Class”) travelling between London and New York were entertained by Phillip and celebrities from the wine & food world while crossing the ocean. This was an overwhelming success and received praise by wine and travel publications on both sides of the “pond”. In the mid 1990′s, Phill launched his high profile media career and emerged as one of the leading wine event promoters working with a variety of personalities including wine authors Robert Parker and Hugh Johnson, lifestyle guru Robin Leach, and TV chefs Emeril Lagasse, Graham Kerr and Julia Child.

In the latter part of the 1990′s Phillip realized many of his lifelong ambitions, reached circuitously through the world of wine and food. He became a syndicated TV and radio wine commentator, author and columnist, writing and hosting his award winning radio features “Wining About The Good Life”, on Philadelphia’s NPR station and his twice Emmy nominated PBS TV vignettes “One On Wine with Phillip Silverstone”. Phillip’s column “Wining About The Good Life” was syndicated weekly and his book “Cheers! The World of a Wine-osaur” took him on a book tour sponsored by American Express.

Phillip had enormous success hosting “Wine-tertainment” events for hotels and restaurants. He has been featured on CNN and appeared frequently on the hugely popular national cable TV network “The Food Network” Phillip’s philosophy for wine was refreshingly simple and unique. His anecdotes, short stories, outspoken opinions and practical “unstuffy” tips were aimed at anyone who enjoys a light hearted approach to an often dull topic.

In the new century, Phillip embarked on a new career, melding what he knew from wine into a world in which he had always been immersed and hoped to one day share with his audience. The outcome will be found on this website and across social media globally. Phillip is now presenting the world of entertainment and fashion along with his other loves of wine and food and travel and art. Phillip’s “quirky” commentaries and interviews are presented with his dry British humour and irreverence, showcasing his guests in an entertaining and interesting format that whets the audience’s appetite leaving them “thirsting” for more. Phill’s show has become a magnet for independent film makers, recording artists and authors, especially for women succeeding in those fields.

Phillip’s live weekly show “SilverstoneLIVE” is seen globally on Facebook every Friday at 5pm USA (eastern time). The show then transfers to Phill’s Youtube channel as a video immediately after the live show. It is also heard as that week’s podcast on “Time Out With Phillip Silverstone” on his TuneIn radio channel.

Phill’s other love is photography and “Exposed by Silverstone” is an opportunity for him to work with models and bring his flair for portraits to his social media audience especially on Instagram. He also captures “raw” portraits in his street photography, usually showing a fractured society in need of repair.

We hope you will enjoy this website and Phillip’s work, which is showcased here, and on social media. Whether it is an interview or a photograph, it is a world that Phill embraces and enjoys sharing with his audience.
