The Apollonio winery, born in 1870, is an Italian historical company. In the Apollonio wine you will find the know-how of four generations of wine producers. The cradle of this story is the land of Apulia, whose territory and climate make it one of the best Italian regions producing excellent wine. The company approach features a rigorous selection of exclusively Salento grapes, mainly Negroamaro and Primitivo, carefully chosen and worked, and very often aged in barrels and bottles. The company success lies in the ability to make wine according to traditional vinification processes with the help of state-of-the-art technologies, always considering the latest consumer tastes and following the most remarkable marketing rules.
