The estate

This land is our land. In these vineyards we played as children, we grew up, we became men.



In 1989, the bold and far-sighted decision to purchase a property in the Garbi Mountains laid the foundations for what is now a world-renowned agricultural estate producing excellent wines, with over one hundred hectares of cultivated land and a state-of-the-art ageing centre.


First vintage, first year of production and proprietary bottling thanks to the birth of the historic Brand Tenuta Sant'Antonio and its products of the Soave DOC, Valpolicella DOC, Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG denominations


Construction of the cellar structure on the Garbi Mountains, site for the pressing, vinification and bottling of wines. Also present is the historic barrel cellar where the iconic products of Tenuta Sant'Antonio production are still refined today.


Expansion of the Tenuta Sant'Antonio project, purchase of new hectares of vineyards and origin of the SCAIA brand dedicated to the interpretation of the grapes of the territory in a new key and with the IGT denominations.


Further development of the company and creation of the first TéLOS branded bottles, dedicated to the research and development of the idea of sustainability applied to wine. Production of wines without the addition of sulphites, without the use of chemical or animal synthesis products (Vegan Certification) and forthcoming Organic certification.


The complete idea of the FAMIGLIA CASTAGNEDI was born, the signature and the guarantee of quality that the founding brothers have developed in 25 years of experience. The common factor of 3 iconic brands in their respective styles, which thanks to international experiences allowed to bring value to a land that until the end of the 80s was considered "Garbo", without value and which today tells of a dream come true, looking to the future.


New investments, in the vineyard, in the cellar, communication and product. New oenological projects and new challenges to face the future with the desire and determination with which the first 25 years of history have been faced.

The 4 brothers

We are 4 brothers with a deep knowledge of vines and their territory.

Our dream was born among our father’s vineyards, in the heart of Valpolicella. It has rural origins and strong ambitions. It leads us to take the utmost care for the wine we produce at every processing stage. With a very clear intention: the pursuit of excellence.

I nostri collaboratori

Our vineyards extend between Soave and Valpolicella, noble territories with different characteristics and personality. These are territories where we know the terrain inside out, where the sun shines and when the shade comes so that we can rest for a while. This is our land and we love it.




Valpolicella has an ancient origin and meaning. In fact Vallis-polis-cellae means “valley of many cellars”. Soils suited to the cultivation of vines, often indigenous vines and a long wine history ensure the production of DOC and DOCG wines, absolute excellence of this territory. The climate is mitigated by the breezes of Lake Garda, with compact soils of limestone skeleton. The hilly belt of the vineyards, close to the Alps, is between 250 and 350 meters above sea level.


The territory of Soave is part of the Eastern Lessini Mountains and many millions of years ago the area was covered by the sea and characterized by countless submarine volcanic phenomena. For this reason the current conformation is made up of basalts from volcanic flows and calcareous sediments of fossil origin. The oldest evidence of vine cultivation in these hills dates back to the Etruscan period.The hilly belt of the vineyards, close to the Alps, is between 120 and 130 meters above sea level. It is an ideal area for growing vines, also thanks to the mild climate due to the influences of Lake Garda.
