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.
