The olive oils from Moulin Saint-Michel, Provence, France

medium_medium_saint-michel-rossi.jpg

Since 1744, the Moulin Saint-Michel in Mouriès, in the Valley of Baux-de-Provence, has been processing the harvest of the olive growers in the Alpilles, near the foothills of the Alps. Our family has been passionately involved in this region, this history and this noble trade for three generations. We carefully watch over the origin of the olives and, respecting ancestral techniques, store them in our lofts before bringing them to the heart of the mill where they are stripped, washed, and ground.

We then carry out a single cold pressing, always resulting in extra virgin quality. The oil is composed of the main varieties found in the Valley of Baux-de-Provence: the Grossane olive, the Salonenque, Verdale, Berruguette, and the Picholine, an ideal combination refining and elevating the flavours of the food with which it is used.

Every drop of this precious nectar contains a piece of our Provence, a piece of our heart and our passion.

The olive tree found its preferred soil and environment in the Valley of Baux-de-Provence a very long time ago. A tree of light, symbol of vitality and longevity, it has lived through the centuries, struggling against the wind and harsh weather. Marie Mauron recounts: “The accursed year of extreme cold in 1956, when all the trees in our orchards died, I saw the hardest men crying in front of blackened olive tree trunks, and three years later, softened when they saw new shoots - flames of hope - slowly sprouting from the trunks”.

The fruit spends the entire summer getting its nourishment from the sun. It ripens in the autumn and is picked when the wintry weather begins to make itself felt. Filled with the scents of our Alpilles foothills here in Provence, our olive unveils the full range of its fragrances, exalts the human taste buds, and simply makes our mouths sing.

This is certainly one of the reasons why the National Committee on Culinary Arts awarded the olive groves of the Valley of Baux-de-Provence the seal of quality as a “remarkable site for its taste” in 1995.
