    Description

    Clos des Jeannons The Moulin du Clos des Jeannons was created in 2003, the result of a project lasting over a century. The ancestors of the Horard family have lived in the commune of Gordes for over five centuries (500 years) and it has been a family of olive producers since almost the dawn of time. In the early 20th century, André Horard’s great grandfather had a building constructed to house grinding wheels and presses for crushing olives and making oil, but he was overtaken by age and illness and was never able to complete this project. For more than a century, five generations of the Horard family lived and worked within the walls of the mill, which never actually existed but was present in spirit every day. In around 2000, André, a farmer passionate about olive production, and his son Guillaume, decided to complete this project together. It took more than a year to draw up the plans and put together the dossier. It was constructed in 2003 and the first drop of oil left the grinding stones on 15 November 2003. The building scrupulously respects ancient local construction techniques in its use of old wooden and stone materials. The research and creation of this structure were entirely the work of André and Guillaume. The Moulin du Clos des Jeannons currently crushes over 400 tonnes of olives for its own produce and for other producers in the Gordes region. Olive production has undergone major climatic and economic changes over the centuries. Note that no railway line has never passed through the village, simply because the local farmers of the time refused this technical advance, fearing that the smoke from the locomotive engines would harm the growth of the olive groves. André Horard, the owner of the Mill, expressed his passion with his family and in the company of those who produce and love olives. Aglandau, Cayon, Salonenque and Bouteillan olives are grown in the local soil. These are four carefully selected varieties, which the Mill presses to produce an AOC oil with a green, slightly spicy, very herbal taste and a hint of bitterness, as well as a so-called traditional oil from Aglandou olives with peppery, spicy aromas and a hint of artichoke. The shop also sells the entire range of sun-drenched products, including tapenades, jars of olives, garrigue honeys, wines from the surrounding vineyards, syrups and a range of cosmetic products. The Moulin du Clos des Jeannons also organises guided visits around the olive-growing tradition, the working of the Mill and the production of the oil, as well as a walk along the trail around the estate. The shop is open Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. during the summer. Clos des Jeannons The Moulin du Clos des Jeannons was created in 2003, the result of a project lasting over a century.
