The Apollonio Wine Company has a long and deep-rooted history, and was awarded with the title of "Impresa Storica d’Italia" (Historic Company of Italy). This four-generation history – yet always evolving remaining faithful to itself – began in 1870, when Noè Apollonio started his adventure, followed by his son Marcello, who would later modernized the small firm. After World War II, Marcello’s son, Salvatore, marked a turning point by introducing business management. Today, it is the turn of the fourth generation to run the company: Marcello and Massimiliano Apollonio have succeeded in exporting a label that is a byword for first-rate quality and trustworthiness all over the world.
5 Wine Lines

Meticulous as they are, Marcello and Massimiliano Apollonio have created 5 wine production lines, which interpret the Salento territory, its typicity and fascination, by using traditional as well as modern methods, and advanced technologies. In 1999, they also founded another wine firm, named "Terre del Grico", which produces an innovative wine line, with a strong, distinctive character that reflects the passion of those who cultivate its vineyards.

The 5 lines: Apollonio - Rocca dei Mori - Forte Incanto - Compagnia Vignaioli - Terre del Grico

Distinguishing marks

With a passion for wine aging and selection, Apollonio exports its products to 35 countries.
