Agricola Il Ponte
The company was founded in 1988 when Cesare and Adelina decided to buy a ruin with the idea of exploiting the splendid and rich land of the Maremma, and at the same time staying close to the sea.
Thanks to its proximity to Rome – although it is in Tuscany – the house in Capalbio immediately becomes a place to spend countless and unforgettable weekends.
The name “Il Ponte” comes from the desire to create a place where you can spend wonderful family days:
– far enough away (but not too far!) to perceive being in a different place from that of the weekly daily life
– so special as to have the impatience to return, take advantage of every opportunity granted by the calendar, especially on holidays, and therefore make the “bridge”.
Together with his sons Salvatore, Lorenzo and Emanuele, Il Ponte becomes a real place where thoughts of school and work are “almost” forgotten …
– the little ones can spend the day running on a bicycle, or behind a soccer ball;
– adults can instead relax in long banquets (on the terrace in summer or in front of a fireplace in winter) or relax the tension of a hectic life, between walks with friends and family, fantasizing about how generous those lands are.
The farmhouse is also available for rent!

Anthonij Rupert Wyne was founded on the farm L’Ormarins in Franschhoek.
