IONIS was established in 2008 amid the hills of the ‘Valle d’Iria’ 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.

Ionis selects the best grapes from partner vineyards, an area of 8,000 hectares (20,000 acres) together they decide the best time for harvesting each variety.

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

The selected wines are made from grapes that are native to the Salento region, Verdeca, Primitivo IGT and DOC, Negroamaro, Salice Salentino DOC and Malvasia Nera. They also produce some international wines
such as Chardonnay.
