The Food Expert: 

We are two farmers and the custodians of one of the most famous and appreciated Sicilian foods: the Pistacchio di Bronte PDO and Slow Food Presidium. Our farm is located in Bronte, a small village on the slopes of Mount Etna. It was born from the fusion of two farms handed down from generations. Our Bronte pistachio trees grow in plots of wild, rocky terrain.

We offer a tour of the north-western slope of Mount Etna to travellers wishing to discover, at a different pace from commercial tourism, a lesser-known but probably more authentic Sicily than the classic destinations. Come and see that for pistachio Bronte is a top destination in Italy!

We are two farmers and the custodians of one of the most famous and appreciated Sicilian foods: the Pistacchio di Bronte PDO and Slow Food Presidium.

Our farm is located in Bronte, a small village on the slopes of Mount Etna. It was born from the fusion of two farms handed down from generations. Our pistachio trees grow in plots of wild, rocky terrain.

Bronte Pistachio is created from the perfect fusion between the lava soil, rich in substances and minerals, and the pistachio tree. It is a unique fruit, prized for its taste, aroma, colour and quality.

We offer a tour of the north-western slope of Mount Etna to travellers wishing to discover, at a different pace from commercial tourism, a lesser-known but probably more authentic Sicily than the classic destinations.

Bronte Pistachio

This variety of pistachio grows in the rugged terrain around Bronte, on the slopes of Mount Etna in Sicily. It has got a bright emerald green colour and an intense aroma.
The trees are not fertilised or irrigated. They are treated and pruned very little. Bronte pistachio is harvested every two years. In the “unloading” years, farmers remove dry branches and buds so that the tree can release all its energy in the following season.
