Four of us visited Paololeo on Monday the 1st July and did the Taralvino tour which was 29 Euros. Our tour included a visit to the winery proper (which was very impressive, clean and expanding!) and then onto the shop to do the wine tasting.
Our host (Paola) was great, she spoke very good English and was able to explain the stages involved in harvesting the grape and when it came to the wine tasting she took time and gave us some handy tips on how to taste the wine properly.
The selected wines were great and I could not do them justice here but we bought a few bottles for dinner that evening - all told for 29 Euro's we thought the tour and the tasting was great value for money and an excellent way to spend a Monday lunch time - thank you to Paola and the team that hosted us - we hope to be back one day and try some more!

Great experience! One of the highlight of our entire trip to Puglia. Delicious wines, very good snacks and a great guide explaining us in English about their wines.

We had to pay upfront, so that information in Tripadvisor doesn't seem to be correct. We were running late because of our own fault but it was handled with flexibility by Cantine Paololeo. The entire experience is highly recommended by us.

Had a wonderful wine tasting experience here. Staff were super friendly and walked us through the shop giving us information about the winery and the wines before seating us at a table for the tasting. Wines were great!

It was an amazing experience to discover wine form Puglia and the Numen just became one of my favourite chardonnays.
Many thanks to Filomena with her extensive knowledge and allowing us to try some other wines they produced. The wines were just exceptional. I learnt a lot and I have be definitely become customer.
Hope to go for their aperitivo next time I am in Puglia

Our party of six were on a weeks visit to find our favourite Primitivo wine and we started with Cantine Paololeo. Filomena was very informative and answered all our questions around the wine process of the local wines that come through their winery. The tour included a tour around the winery and we saw the process from delivery of grapes to the bottling.
We travelled a few kilometres to the fields where the vines grow and even though the harvest had finished, there were still some grapes in situ.
The wine tasting with local meats,cheese,and olives took place at their shop and we thoroughly enjoyed not just the Primitivo but the other chosen wines too. Filomena gave us a comprehensive explanation to each wine and others available in the shop.
We took away several wines as we continue our research.
The whole visit took around three hours.
Would definitely recommend this wine tour.

We had booked through a travel agency (Stile Italiano Tours, Milan) a visit to the winery to witness the processsing of the grapes, harvest having started a week before. Having arrived late (no thanks to GPS) we were met by our guide, Philomena, who said that the winery was shut: it always is on Saturdays and Sundays, and the company had often told the travel agency. A brief visit to a small barrel hall then whisked off to the company wine shop in town. Philomena gave us a very limited (3 wines) win-tasting with small amounts of bread, cheese and meat, but nothing like as good as what we were given the day before at the Museo Primitivo.
The agency charged us 40 euros per person for a winery tour that didn’t happen and a limited wine tasting that was not as good as the museum’s which was about half the price. Not Philomina’s fault - it was the fault of the travel agency.

Hello, Thanks for the feedback. We are sorry for your regret regarding the visit. On weekends the winery is normally closed, and the agency is aware of it. In this case you visited the winery because we are in harvest period and we also work on Saturday, even if all the departments do not work, but only the one involved in the harvest. In fact, you have seen the process of unloading the grapes and the destemmer machine in operation: you came in a day when not much grapes arrived to the winery, so it did not seem that the winery was in full swing. Unfortunately the daily job in the winery cannot depend on Wine Tours, so some days there is a lot of job to do and more trucks arrive, some other days there is less work to do, which is completely normal. The bottling machine was off because it respects the normal working hours (from Monday to Friday), even in the period of harvest. As for the barrel room, we are sorry that it seemed small to you, it is the one that we show to all the tourists in view of inaugurating the new barrel room, much larger. As for the aperitif, it is the first time we receive complaints because it seemed a small aperitif, but I remember well that you were served not 3 wines, but 5. In any case, complaints are always positive because they provide new insights to improve the quality of the visit and of the experience. Moreover, consider that we are a young and growing company, and one day we hope to reach the same level as the Museo del Primitivo, which have a nearly centenary history. Anyway, if you'll be around in the future, we invite you to visit us again during the week, so that you can ejnoy the complete esperience. Best Regards Paololeo Wine Tour Staff

A fantastic tour hosted by Filomena. Very friendly and knowledgable about the local area, winery and it’s 40+ wine selection. Highly recommended tour and some fantastic wines to taste accompanied by meats, cheeses, breads and olives.
