A reverse migration
Giovanni Battista Cantele and his wife Teresa Manara arrived in Salento from Imola, where they ultimately resettled for good. They were following their dream to build a future for their family in the south, a fertile land of wine and hope.
A winery is born
Encouraged by their proud parents Giovanni Battista and Teresa Manara,
Augusto and Domenico Cantele opened the Cantele winery. It marked the beginning of our family's new chapter, a story that would be told through the bottles of wine that our family would produce.
The third generation
When Augusto's children Gianni and Paolo and Domenico's children Umberto and Luisa began working at the winery, it was an affirmation of their parents' and their grandparents' vision for the future.
The new winery
Inspired by the classic farmhouse estates typically found in Puglia, the winery owns 50 hectares of vineyards and manages another 150. On the grounds of the estate, the winery's Tasting Lab ``iSensi`` is a test kitchen and tasting room where guests can explore the magic of Salento's cuisine.
