Cantine Paololeo

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

There have been five generations of winemakers who, united by a passion for wine and never leaving their land, have built a piece of history of the winery which, today as then, in located in the town of San Donaci, south of Brindisi.

The main focus of the Paololeo winery is the family and the territory in all its traditional expressions; the winery is flanked by the farm which today owns more than 70 hectares and an ancient farmhouse surrounded by vineyards; Primitivo, Negroamaro, white and black Malvasia of Lecce: these are the main autochthonous vines grown, followed by Chardonnay and Fiano.

Today it is a modern company of 35,000 square meters, equipped with a fully automated bottling line, a capacity of 120,000 hectoliters of wine and 1,000 French and American barriques for aging the wines.

The annual production is currently around 5 million bottles, of which 60% is destined for sale abroad in countries such as Denmark, Sweden, Norway, England, Germany, Switzerland, USA, Brazil and others.

Remaining faithful to tradition has always been Paolo Leo's goal, animated by the same hereditary passion that has accompanied the Leo family business for more than a hundred years.
