Paolo Leo


Paolo Leo – Five generations of love and passion.
The story of this beautiful estate began at the turn of the 19th century when Antonio Leo started to vinify the grapes grown on his estate, Masseria Monticello, which included 20 hectares of vineyards. In the early 1920’s Antonio passed on his passion and business to his grandson, Paolo Leo, who inherited the 20 hectares of vines and built his own winery in the small town of San Donaci. 

This marks the beginning of Feudo Paolo Leo as it is known today. In the early 1950’s, the fourth generation of the Leo family tradition of quality wine production, Nicola Leo, took over the business and re-planted the family’s 20 hectares of vines. As a very young adult in the early 1980’s, fifth-generation Paolo Leo, the actual owner, had a dream – to follow the footsteps of his father and great grandfather and build a modern, state-of-the-art winery in San Donaci.

Investments in the winery has been consistent since its creation. The winery today has a total capacity of 50.000 hectolitres, a new and fully-automated bottling line and over 500 French and American oak barriques for the ageing of the wines.The philosophy at Feudo Paolo Leo is to be in perfect harmony with nature, intervening only when absolutely necessary, thus ensuring that each grape expresses its natural and unique personality.
