The genuine passion of an individual who in his encounter with a mysteriously forceful and untamed nature found the challenge that represented his fated vocation. This was the origin of Masseria Capoforte. Ettore bore a passion for the cultivation of the grapevine, a love for the passing from hand to hand of a centuries-old art that incarnates the fruitful synergy between the open-hearted fecundity of nature and fashioning supplied by the talents of man. The Ceschin, an ancient Veneto family, are the owners of the entire estate, which was created by Ettore, an enlightened businessman whose name too renders homage to the noble ideals and the resolute determination of the hero of the ancient Greek epic.
