A big agricultural center, Riposto boasts a rich production of wine grapes, citrus fruits, and olives.

The name Riposto derives from commercial Sicilian term U ripostu, that means "wine cellar" because it used to function as a deposit for the huge quantities of wine gathered in the nearby towns of Giarre and Mascali.

The first suburb belonged to the town of Giarre until 1841, when it became independent thus experiencing a noteworthy financial an urban development.

In 1939, the town became dependent once again, subjugated to Giarre's administration, and it was first called "Riposto-Giarre" and in  1942, it was named "Jonia". In 1945, the two towns were administratively divided once again.
