  • Tenuta Capri is located at the centre of Monferrato Astigiano area in Piedmont, listed as Unesco World Heritage Site. Its story began in the 20th century, when grandpa Bernardo started the cultivation of vineyards, even though the production of wine was destined only for the family and friends’ consumption. In the 80's, his son Pierluigi Bruno, a great passionate of the agricultural and wine industry, began his winemaking career. The family still supervises the entire winemaking process, from vine growing and vinification to bottling and direct sale of the products.
