The company was founded back in 1890 and its 40 hectares of vines have been grown for generations amongst the basalt rocks of volcanic origins. The company is now run by the fourth generation of vine growers: Sisto, Pietro and Elena Tessari. The company is named after the chapel (Oratorio San Giovanni Battista, 1725) where once upon a time the Capuchin monks used to celebrate mass. The company obtained its organic certification in 1986.

La Cappuccina is one of the most interesting realities in the Soave universe, and its Fontgo is an excellent example of what can be considered as the historical white wine of Italy. The mineral content of this wine prevails over the fruit of other Soave, and this gives a particular elegance. Its bouquet contains intense aromas of flowers but also evident hints of citrus (grapefruit) and an elegant finish of hazelnuts. Its flavour is well-balanced and persistent. This wine is perfect for accompanying appetizers and sea fish.
