Description

Salento area, in Southern Puglia, offers the ideal environmental conditions for practicing organic farming. The high solar irradiation during most of the year, combined with the absolute absence of rain during the summer and the great ventilation, make it possible to produce healthy grapes, without the need of any pesticides or systemic chemical substances. Aware of the importance of reducing the use of herbicides and pesticides to protect the land and biodiversity of Salento, as well as the health of its population, PaoloLeo winery offers an entire line of certified organic wines.

Cantine Paololeo

If it is true that behind every bottle of wine there is always a nice story to tell, the one of Paololeo wines is a simple but beautiful story, just like all the family stories are.

Today Paololeo winery is a modern company: it covers an area of 17,000 square meters and is equipped with a very modern winemaking system, a large barrel room and a cutting-edge bottling line capable of bottling  7000 bottles per hour.

However, the "heart" of all the current area under vines are still those 25 hectares where, at the beginning of the twentieth century, the great-grandfather began to vinify his grapes in Masseria Monticello. Then his nephew Paolo Leo inherited the land and built the winery.

Today it is still an heir, the namesake Paolo Leo, son of Nicola, to lead the new winery, together with his wife Roberta and his eldest sons Nicola and Stefano, who are paving the way for the younger brothers Francesco and Alessandro.
