Nativity of Saint John
History

Nativity of Saint John

Today 24th of June we celebrate the nativity of Saint John the Baptist, the patron saint to whom our 17th century chapel is dedicated just a few days from the summer solstice 🌞
Symbols of Saint John are the primordial elements, the fire of summer and the water with which he baptized 💦

Nature gives us a hand

Nature gives us a hand to start again, Nature punctually and silently operates.

The vine blooms just in these days, very delicate flowers and scents in the Garganega grape.

Nature gives us the hope of continuing to cultivate it waiting patiently for its fruit.

A message oh hope from our family Tessari La Cappuccina

A message of hope from our family Tessari La Cappuccina

These are difficult days, hard days. 

Spring has blossomed and it is almost impossible if we are aware about it.

The work ig going on in the vineyards and in the cellar with the appropriate precautions, we certainly cannot stop.

The cycle of seasons deserves its course and the vine calls us.
