Cultivating Tradition and Innovation: The Journey of Cantine Paololeo

As a respected wine distributor located in the Upper West Side of Manhattan, NY, Wine Affairs proudly showcases exceptional wineries like Cantine Paololeo. This distinguished winery, nestled in the heart of Apulia's Negroamaro Park, represents the finest in traditional and innovative winemaking.

Founded in 1989 by Paolo Leo, Cantine Paololeo is a family-run winery deeply rooted in the love for its land and commitment to sustainability. The winery's practices are certified by Equalitas, reflecting its dedication to economic, ethical, and environmental sustainability. Cantine Paololeo has earned international acclaim for producing quality wines that maintain the authentic character of indigenous Apulian grape varieties such as Primitivo, Negroamaro, and Malvasia.

At their San Donaci headquarters and their Monteparano winery—located in the prime Primitivo di Manduria production zone—Paolo Leo and his family, alongside a team of dedicated professionals, focus on cultivating wines that represent the essence of their region. These wines are not only an expression of the land but also the passion and philosophy of the younger winemaker, Nicola Leo. His creations are a testament to the unique potential of their vineyards, striving to deliver wines that resonate with both emotion and precision.

Paolo Leo sums up their approach with poignant clarity: "Our primary relationship is with the land and our customers. We've shown that it's possible to produce internationally recognized quality wines in Puglia, which exhibit elegance and finesse while preserving their original character."

At Wine Affairs, we are not only committed to bringing such distinguished producers to a broader audience but are also focused on expanding our partnerships with like-minded wine distributors who value organic and sustainable winemaking. Additionally, we are continually on the lookout for passionate wine professionals and salespeople to enhance our team.
