Les Olivades

Celebrate the Olivades at Benvengudo !

Every year Benvengudo invites you to participate in the Olivades, a true Provençal tradition.

You will participate in the harvesting of the estate’s olives, as well as a visit to the Moulin de Castelas, which produces Benvengudo’s olive oil every year. You will discover this ancestral practice with the Hugues family, owner of the mill, who are happy to share their recognised know-how here, in the heart of the Alpilles, but also throughout the world!

Naturally, the discovery will continue with a tasting of the different olive oils and the discovery of their particularities.

This afternoon of sharing continues with a dinner on the theme of olives. Gastronomy and conviviality will be the watchwords of this evening, set to music by the famous gypsy group News Flamenco.
