Cantele

Cantele

Cantele winery was founded by Giovanni Battista Cantele who was born near Venice in 1907. After the Second World War he moved to Puglia with his wife, Teresa, and their two young sons Augusto and Domenico. 

In 1979 the father and sons decided to start a new winery under their own name, initially buying and bottling other people’s wines, but from the 1990s they started to acquire vineyards. In 2003 a brand new state of the art winery was opened and today they own 50 ha of vineyards and manage a further 150ha. Today the children of Augusto and Domenico make up the team at Cantele: Augusto’s sons Gianni and Paolo are wine maker and brand manager respectively; whilst their cousins Umberto and Luisa, Domenico’s offspring take care of sales and the admin of the company.
