We think that the new must be the searched in the archaic. In this sense Villa Ponte has looked for its own tradition which is intimately connected to land, hard work and to olive cultivation.
As the cosmopolite intellectual Predrag Matvejevic’ wrote in Mediterranean Breviary: “as far as there is an olive tree, there is the Mediterranen sea”. The new line called GREEN GOLD was born from a reflection on the tortuousness of the saracen olive tree trunk, as we call centuries-old olive plants. The new line brings the solidity of the tradition looking to the future at the same time.
The weave of the olive tree trunk represents the text of an old narration that tells of a precious product used to celebrate gods, to take care of the body, to search for immortality, to grease kings and christians in all the Mediterranean area. This texture made of curves and wooden nervatures carves the profile of an island – and more specifically of the Iblei mountains plateau – where the Phoenicians, the Greeks and the Arabs left us, as witnesses, a part of their heritage.
The agricultural company Villa Ponte tries to carry over that tradition with efforts and earnestness day-by-day, respecting nature and using consciously clean energy obtained from renewable sources in order to offer to each customer an accurate selection of products, which is the original fruit of our territory and our identity.

  • Tonda Iblea

    Tonda Iblea

    As strong, fascinating and wonderful as an olive wood. Tonda Iblea is the first extract of excellence presented by Villa Ponte. A pure oil obtained from the Tonda Iblea cultivar which our company grows on its own property in Chiaramonte Gulfi and which is destinated to be D.O.P (Protected Designation of Origin) Monti Iblei of the well known Gulfi subzone.

    The bottle is solid and manageable and is easily placed on any type of surface. It fits comfortably in your hand and gives a feeling of fullness when gripped. The circle, a symbol of equilibrium, encloses everything that produces such an exceptional product: the soft hills, the sun and the ancient olive tree. The total balance between bitter and spicy is represented by the circular shape that also conveys the feeling of “roundness” to the palate.
    A jewell you don’t wear, but taste.

  • MISTERO

    MISTERO

    From its first original use by the ancient Greeks, the term has always indicated the celebration of secret cults in a context where reality is hidden and sacred. In general it refers to anything that cannot be understood or explained clearly and that for this reason becomes fascinating. Mistero is the result of skilful blending of olives that Villa Ponte has grown for years (Tonda Iblea, Verdese, Moresca) and to which it has dedicated its love and patience obtaining, as a result, the satisfaction of creating a high quality and genuine product.

    Mistero is the union of varieties which, just like musical notes, create a sweet and sublime symphony of the palate. Our hills, the musical score of a land that has been loved and respected, hold the roots of all that is good and beautiful. Mistero is the combination of love, passion, flavour and genuine quality all included in the same product. A triptych that is well represented on the front indicates the origin of this product which pleases the palate when added to belonging to original rural culinary tradition dishes such as legumes, steamed vegetables or salads.
    Harmony and the varietal triptych.

  • VERDESE

    VERDESE

    A vigorous tree with full, hanging fronds whose elliptical fruit a slightly rounded base produces an intense fruity oil with hints of fresh grass.
    Verdese reclaims its title and presents itself to the public in a different “garment”. It’s origin is represented by imprinting on the front a delicate golden line which traces the shape of the olive that generates this intensely unique and flavourful fluid which suits cold dishes, cheese, roasts and venison alike.
    Verdese releases it’s spell when you open the bottle. It’s simplicity goes a long way in defining the products. A single, simple and refined element which describes one of the historical cultivars of our land.

    The best description of a product that speaks for itself.
