Moulin Castelas – Olive Oil Mill

After living for 15 years on the wide-open plains of Arizona (but with their distinctive French Midi accent intact!) Catherine and Jean-Benoît Hugues decided to go back to their roots. They returned home to Provence to dedicate themselves to their passion: the olive tree.

The Domain Castelas’ story began in 1997, when they fell in love with some old olive trees, planted in south-facing land in the rocky range of Les Alpilles, in the locality of Castelas facing Les Baux-de-Provence village. Today, their olive oils are treasures of flavour and complexity, distinguished regularly by prizes at the Concours Général Agricole in Paris.
