Located in the southern slopes of the Alpilles in the heart of Provence spanning 500 acres, Château d’Estoublon has been passionately perpetuating the tradition of exceptional olive oils and sun-drenched wines since 1489. Their olive orchards and vineyards have been classified Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) since 1995.
With 300 acres of olive trees and 50 acres of vineyards, they are considered one of the most remarkable sites in the region. Grapes and olives are cultivated and worked on the estate, respecting organic agriculture and following exclusively manual and mechanical manufacturing processes, without the use of chemicals.
The Chateau produces 5 varieties of olives – Grossane, Béreguette, Salonenque, Bouteillan and Picholine – and are harvested by hand from early November to mid-December. All olives are extra virgin, cold extracted and pressed in their mill to produce quality olive oils that will satisfy the highest culinary demands.
