  • Thank you, Winebow, thank you, America, for a wonderful experience…

    Paolo Cantele (above) just completed two weeks of market work with Cantele’s new U.S. importer, Winebow. He crisscrossed the U.S., from New York to the Midwest, back to New York and then back to the Midwest again, presenting the winery to its new distributors and partners.

    Over the course of the last two weeks, we’ve meet some wonderful people and experienced the immense potential of our partnership. Salento and Puglia have a fantastic story to tell. It’s been an amazing experience to learn that America wants to hear it!

    Thank you, Winebow! Thank you, America!

  • Pouring wine for a good cause in Cleveland, OH

    “Nothing could be better than when wine and food come together for a good cause,” said Paolo Cantele during a recent benefit evening to raise money for the University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center in Cleveland.

    “We are proud to be part of it.”

    From the center’s website:

    “Located on the main campus of University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center in Cleveland, Ohio, UH Seidman Cancer Center opened in spring 2011. The 375,000-square-foot hospital houses all of our cancer services under one roof to optimize patient-and family-centered care, provide the latest therapies, enhance collaboration and promote clinical research and education.”

  • The Cantele family “mosaic”…

    “Each of us is a tile in a mosaic that has taken shape over generations.”

    Umberto Cantele

    Last week, the Cantele family presented “Twenty Years of Cantele Teresa Manara Chardonnay,” a celebration of the wine named after the cousins’ grandmother Teresa — the woman who inspired it all.

    That’s the current generation of the Cantele family above, from left: Umberto, Luisa, Giani, Paolo, and Domenico.

    Thank you to everyone who has made this journey possible!

  • Twenty years of Teresa Manara Chardonnay, named after the woman who inspired it all…

    This year marks the twentieth vintage of Cantele Teresa Manara Chardonnay, named after the Cantele family’s grandmother, the woman whose love of Salento inspired her husband to relocate to Puglia.

    Rhythms that repeat themselves, over and over, just like the sunrise.

    Between ancient olive trees and expert hands, traditions intertwine every evening surrounded by two seas but just one sunset.

    Under a hot sun, men and women sing among the vines. Their hands are rough and their movements soft.

    Run, Teresa. The earth is warm under your feet. You taught us how color tells us when the moment is right. Run. The fruit is ripe and harvest won’t wait.

    Twenty summers, twenty harvests. Winds that blow from the north and dry the dew. A new vintage is ready. It’s ready and it whispers your name.
