The team

We are terroirists with large throats, activist for the defense of authentic wines, we work with passion to promote crafted producers.

Nadir Bensmail
Goliardic Commander-in-Chief, Managing-Partner, responsible for the management and selection of the wines.
He was born in 1975 in Oran and brought up in Toulouse. His passion for wine led him to abandon his blurry idea of pursuing a career as an economist in Paris. Then, he created Os Goliardos and promised never to drink water again. An eloquent man who also has a thirsty will to investigate the depth of things, unifying the wisdoms of the East and the West – this is why we call him the Grand Vizier.

Sílvia Mourão Bastos
Goliardic-Mama, Managing-Partner, responsible for the tutorials, courses, tastings, events and marketing.
She was born in 1973, in the city of Lisbon, where she grew up and made herself a woman before studying Sociology. The restlessness and the will to know different cultures made her travel and live abroad for many years, in Holland and France. Upon her visits to small wine producers in many countries she discovered a world of utopia. She came back to her roots in order to create Os Goliardos, to promote the vineyard and the wine culture with sensibility and humanism beyond borders and without silly nationalisms. She is our tutor and spokesperson, and she does it with an effortlessly powerful and warm tone.

João Mendes
Stockroom-Manager, he is the guardian of the hidden gems.
He joined the team in 2010 when he finally understood that with the amount of Os Goliardos wines that he drank, he’d be better off joining the team. Restless with his wine-box-carrying techniques, he is our Sheriff and he knows how to transmit the Goliardic wave to those who cross his path. A cowboy with bottles in either side of him instead of Colts, he will light your fire just the same.

Miguel Vale
Already a well-known face in the theater and in the television world, Miguel is the latest arrival, and is becoming the ultimate revelation of the Goliardos year. He spares no efforts to be an inescapable salesman of goliardic wine, with generosity, impulsivity, and a youthful dynamism welcome in the middle of forty with hard beards and gray hair team. Multi-skilled, he passes from accounting to maintenance and logistical with incursions into visual and computer part as a goliard jumps from white to red to cider to manzanilla. In a short time, it became a central part of the puzzle.

Manuel Amaral Beja
Referee-Partner, he doesn’t work at Os Goliardos but that does not mean he drinks less than the three above. With his flying eagle eye, he is the invisible member who is irreplaceable in his support over the management strategies. He understands that Os Goliardos is more of a lifestyle than a business, and he only does so because he is a good hedonist.
