We pay tribute to the land, family tradition, cultural history, and land conservation.
Finca La Pontezuela is the accumulation of years of family history, connecting current efforts to the original owners of the land. The family takes pride in this project, giving light and continuity to the work that their predecessors began more than forty-five years ago. The tribute to the founders is filled with the desire to continue the family’s heartfelt tradition and expands on the memory of those who took the initial steps. The project has continued to improve and grow over time.
The successors’ desire to continue years of work taking care of the groves is without a doubt the best way to carry on the family from Mora’s commitment. Great enthusiasm and effort has been made to expand the 5 Elementos Extra Virgin Olive Oil project across international borders. This is the spirit that remains and defines our entire Finca La Pontezuela team.
The work to create the highest quality EVOO starts at the soil but does not end there. Finca la Pontezuela is proud to also dedicate time to education, understanding it is necessary to transmit the benefits of consuming this liquid gold for our health and raise awareness of its vast nutritional value.
A journey through history. A brand that connects with our past, present and future.
La Pontezuela is a meaningful name, indicating “small bridge“. It takes us back to the roots of Toledo, as it was the natural throughway that travellers who came from Extremadura had to cross. This route was also known as the “path of the silversmiths” since it was the same route that silversmiths used to reach the City of the Three Cultures.
In memory of those years that came before us, there is now a street in Toledo called “Camino de Las Pontezuelas”.
The meaning behind our premium brand, 5 Elementos EVOO, represents the four elements of Mother Nature (water, earth, fire and air) along with a fifth element, wood which symbolises our olive trees. This is the basis for our Extra Virgin Olive Oil: the 5 Elements of nature, those inherited from Western thought.
