The olive oil festival was held this Sunday in Sorède, a small village in the Pyrenees Orientales (66). The public was invited to vote for the different oils proposed, under the watchful eye of members of the ‘Confrérie des Chevaliers de l’Olivier du Languedoc-Roussillon’. The second prize was won by our friends from Moulin de Minerve in Pézilla-la-Rivière and Huile des Orgues was acclaimed by the public. All our thanks to the organizers, in particular Romain Beyssac, from the town hall, and to the animators (sardana groups, orchestra, etc.).

The citron is an enormous lemon that is frequently found in Corsica but which also grows in the Roussillon. Citron olive oil is obtained by pressing the fruit with the olives in the mill. It has a very particular woody character.

Jérémie and Marie-Emeline proudly contribute to the family project ‘Huile des Orgues’, during the fair ‘Noel Gourmand’ (literally ‘Greedy Christmas’) which took place in the prestigious ‘Carrousel du Louvre’ in December 2015. This fair was in the Palais Brongniart last year and is made of real producers who have been carefully selected by Mr Florent Colonna who has the experience of the SAVIM fair in Marseille. The audience is made of connoisseurs who were able to taste our olive oil from the ranges Arpeges, Symphonies and Traditions.

Thursday May 5, we received our new packaging line, fully automatic, which will help us face an increasing demand and also guarantee a better precision for the dosage of our bottle and can of olive oil from Roussillon.
This equipment is very simple to use as we just have to place the can on the scale and push a button. Oil is measured by the weight, not the volume, which is more reliable.
