The experience starts with chef Loïc Piètre demonstrating how to make a recipe based around products by the Huilerie Beaujolaise, a moment of delicious discovery before the guided visit of the mill’s workshop, followed by a product tasting session …
Since 1982, Jean Marc Montegottero and his team have been perpetuating the artisanal production of 100% fruit-based virgin oils; a fine, completely natural product: one fruit...one oil.
Over the years, L'Huilerie Beaujolaise has won the confidence of the greatest French and foreign chefs, making them ambassadors for its exceptional products.
As part of our partnership with the Vallée de la Gastronomie, we invite you to spend half a day discovering our expertise.
To awaken your taste buds, your journey will begin in Belleville-en-Beaujolais, where Loïc Piètre will offer you a culinary workshop based on one or more of our products (oils, vinegars or fruit powder).
It's not a cooking class, but you'll be able to get your hands dirty on an occasional basis. And, of course, you'll be able to taste what's been prepared in front of you.
At the end of this "mise en bouche", you'll be given a recipe card so you can reproduce this gastronomic experience at home.
A short 20-minute drive will take you to the gates of our Beaujeu mill, giving you an insight into our beautiful Beaujolais region. The guided tour of this 19th-century workshop will reveal some of our manufacturing secrets. Afterwards, you can sample our oils and vinegars and visit our boutique.
We cannot guarantee that the mill will be operational during the tours.
All year round, daily.
For groups of fewer than 4 people, we reserve the right to cancel the visit. You will be notified one week in advance and will receive a full refund.
