Created in 2000 by Anne and Gilles Brun in Saint-Rémy de Provence, the Moulin du Calanquet has relaunched the olive-growing activity in its municipality which had been extinct for more than 40 years. Five generations in the agricultural world, attachment to the land, respect for family values and traditions and incredible dynamism are the very foundations of the company.
Le Moulin du Calanquet has an olive grove of more than 20,000 feet, which were planted in 1997. It is made up of traditional regional varieties: Aglandau, Salonenque, Grossane, Verdale and Picholine. Its specificity is to produce monovarietal olive oils in addition to a blend. This orientation makes it possible to discover the multiple flavors and aromas of each variety in order to be able to associate them with different dishes.
Its name calanquet comes from the Provencal word 'calan' which is a rock where it is good to take shelter from the Mistral. Strongly anchored in Provençal traditions, the Moulin du Calanquet is also a model of modernity. It uses all the advanced techniques for its production, in accordance with European food safety and hygiene standards.
Since its launch, its notoriety has increased in national and international gastronomy ...
