Are you sure that your Bembo fonts contain SmallCaps?

The most important factor is that it's a feature of advanced fonts to  
allow selection of such font features as SmallCaps (while you're  
typing "normal" characters) – in case they provide them! You can't do  
that with simple PostScript or TrueType fonts. If such a font by  
chance contains these glyphs you'd have to type the Unicode positions  
of these characters, just as the Unicode value (in hex) 20AC (8364 in  
decimal) selects the € glyph from the font – if it's there. Try this  
with Bembo!

XeTeX does not create faked SmallCaps as some ("normal") TeX packages  



The light at the end of the tunnel has been turned off due to budget
