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.

Only by virtue of our long experience could we locate the most suitable areas for the cultivation of our different varieties of grape, for our different methods of cultivation, and managing the vineyards. Since we have at our disposal a vast area where vines are grown, we decided to collaborate with several wine growers’ cooperatives situated all over the Salento region to create a group of expert wine makers. We cooperate with our partners throughout the year and this allows us to have a richer range of selected GRAPES, MUSTS and WINES.

We select the best grapes from our partners’ vineyards, an area of 8,000 hectares (20,000 acres) and decide the best time for harvesting each variety.

After a careful vinification, we select once again the wines that offer the best chemical and physical balance to make sure that we have a long-lasting quality of wine before we refine and bottle our produce.

The selected wines we offer include particular wines made from grapes that are native to the Salento region, Verdeca, Primitivo IGT and DOC, Negramaro, Salice Saleno DOC and Malvasia Nera.

We also produce some international wines such as Chardonnay.

We believe that our company policy is successful and our results confirm this conviction because in the Vinitaly festival in 2009, just a few months after our appearance in the market, we were one of the vintners that received the highest number of awards.

90% of our production is sold to foreign markets, Germany, Switzerland, France, UK, USA, Denmark, Holland, Belgium, Norway, Poland and recently to the Oriental countries.
