Moulin à huile de Bédarrides

Fontvieille - Olives - Huiles d'olives

Direct oil sales AOC virgin olive oil. The Moulin de Bédarrides, located on the way out of the village, has been producing olive oil since the end of the 18th century. The village of Fontvielle then boasted nine mills. The Bédarrides mill is the only one that survives from this period. It has been owned by the Bellon family since 1913 and the profession of oil-presser is now being practised by the fourth generation. The shop also sells a wide range of soaps and cosmetics made from olive oil.
Today, as previously, the Moulin de Bédarrides presses olives harvested from the property's orchards as well as those brought in by more than 350 local olive growers.
From All Saints until Christmas is the time of the olive harvest, known as the 'Olivades'. The Mill then becomes a hive of activity. The characteristic aroma of olive paste fills the age-old vaults, which resonate to the sound of the hoppers, the crusher and the settling tank...the Moulin de Bédarrides has been constantly evolving throughout its history.
