2 VISITS FOR A DISCOVERY OF OUR CRAFT
"Learn more about the history of Beaujolais in the not so distant past"
At the start of the 20th century, Beaujeu still had three mills and people regularly brought nut kernels to be pressed into oil.
The Huilerie Beaujolaise has been using the new production tool in the Ardillats region, since 2007; but by no means has the Beaujeu mill simply become a museum. It operates during the made-to-order season and is used to make virgin peanut oil.
Just make an appointment for a visit of our mill. You can also find out more about the artisanal methods for making virgin oil – a 100% natural product.
Please contact us in advance in order to plan your visit.
