Falconry and wines

Tenute Capovaccaio

The wines of Tenute Capovaccaio, in the heart of Puglia in Alberobello, are inspired by the love story between Federico II and falconry. With commitment and dedication, we have created labels that celebrate the ancient art of training falcons, a discipline practiced with passion by the founder of our company, Francesco Pezzolla.

Our spirit

WINE+WILD

The philosophy of our winery is to create high-quality wines that reflect the spirit of falconry, a discipline that requires knowledge, dedication, and great attention to detail. We are committed to using only high-quality grapes from our vineyards in the Puglia dei Trulli region and practicing sustainable farming techniques to protect the natural environment in which we live.

The Founder

FRANCESCO PEZZOLLA

Francesco Pezzolla is the founder of our agricultural company. Born in 1976, he was born and resides in Alberobello, a UNESCO World Heritage town famous for its trulli but also for its name derived from the Latin "Silva Arboris Belli", "Forest of the tree of war", referring to the times when the area was covered by a lush forest.
