Moulin Saint Michel
Since 1744, in Mouriès, in Baux-de-Provence valley, the Moulin Saint Michel has been transforming olives harvested by the olive growers of the Alpilles. The ancient mill has been preserved and is open to visitors for the most authentic of tours.
The Moulin Saint Michel has stood at the heart of Baux valley in Mouriès since 1744. Over three generations, the Rossi family developed a passion for this place, for its history and this noble profession.
In keeping with ancestral techniques, the olives are stored in our storehouses before being taken down to the heart of the mill to be stripped, washed and crushed. We carry out a first and the only cold extraction process to bring out the character of the olive oil, while preserving the identity of each variety, therefore producing high-quality oil that is classified as 'extra virgin'.
Our superb range of oils is a direct reflection of the Alpilles terroir, the different varieties of olives (Salonenque, Aglandau, Grossane and Verdale), that are characteristic of the PDO, and the talent of the miller.
This expertise has earned us no less than 76 awards and distinctions since 1975.
In each drop of this precious nectar, there is a piece of our land, a piece of our heart and our passion.
You will also find a selection of local products in the shop: jams, honey, crushed olives from the Baux valley, tapenades, etc. And of course, our range of olive oils.
This unique place in France, which has managed to preserve the 3 methods of making olive oil from 1744 to the present day, is open to the public all year round.
