Ionis - Puglia IONIS® was born amid the hills of the ‘Valle d’Itria’ between the Ionian and Adriatic seas, land of the ‘trulli’, old farms, vineyards, wines and Baroque architecture; a charming place where tradition meets a glorious wine loving heritage. Salento, thanks to its wine producing culture, has become over the years one of the most well-known, important and appreciated Italian and European wine selling regions.

Inspired by his love for the wines of his homeland, Franco Maniaci began importing Italian wines over 25 years ago. Franco Wine Imports stays true to its original mission to bring quality, small production, hand-crafted Italian wines to the shores of California. We search out the best of family vineyards and look for the traditional grapes, but also the unique lesser known grapes that have been loved for centuries in the villages of some of Italy’s most remote areas. Today, Franco Wine Imports is known as a passionate curator of some of the best small production wines in all of Italy and can be found in some of California’s most prestigious restaurants, wine bars, and bottle shops.
