    PRODUCER & MILLER IN PROVENCE
    “When you are born in Provence you cannot live without the scents of the scrubland, the breath of the mistral, the caress of the sun and the magic of the olive tree, this tree which shapes the Provençal landscape. »
    Inspired by this bucolic painting, Catherine and Jean-Benoît Hugues passionately cultivate the tradition of the olive tree, a century-old, sovereign and capricious tree. After living fifteen years in the United States, in the vast plain of Arizona, they decided to return to their roots. They reconnected with their Provençal land in 1997 when they fell in love with old olive trees planted on the south-Alpilles slope at a place called CastelaS. Today Domaine CastelaS produces olives on 45 hectares in Protected Designation of Origin (AOP) in the Vallée des Baux de Provence (including 15 hectares in Organic Agriculture) and 65 hectares in Plaine de Crau (AOC Provence).
    “At home we work with the seasons, we work with the wind, we work with nature.” With deep respect for the landscape, nestled in the heart of the Vallée des Baux de Provence under the protective gaze of the castle, the Moulin CastelaS extracts olive oils with intense aromas.
    Fruity green, old-fashioned or aromatic olive oils, table olives and tapenades provide a typical taste escape reminiscent of a Van Gogh painting.
