IONIS® was born amid the hills of the ‘Valle d’itria’ between the Ionian and Adriatic seas, land of the ‘trulli’, old farms, vineyards, wines and Baroque architecture; a charming place where tradition meets a glorious wine loving heritage. Salento, thanks to its wine producing culture, has become over the years one of the most well-known, important and appreciated Italian and European wine selling regions. The culture of wine has changed in the same way that successive generations differ and develop. Consequently people today consume wine in a very different way, in different circumstances and with a more intense search for a taste that is getting more and more exacting and refined.
This is why the demand for top quality wine, bottled and in bulk, has increased considerably in recent years.
Dr Giulio Palmisano, a wine expert, established his own firm in the 1970s. After forty years of experience in foreign and Italian markets as wine consultant and exporter of wine in bulk, he created in 2008, with the assistance of his sons, Sergio and Mauro, ‘IONIS® ’, a company whose ambitious plan is directed towards bottling and marketing Salento’s best wines.
