We really got on with Jeremy, our guide/driver, who was very informative about the region of Provence, and both the visit to Les-Baux-de-Provence village, and the Castellas Olive Mill were really enjoyable. Our host at the Mill, Remy, was brilliant.... very knowledgable, passionate about the business and enthusiastic in sharing this with us. The whole story of getting from harvested olives to finally blended and bottled oils was explained in depth, with a lot of humour, and the tasting was so interesting as well. Such a contrast to the visit to the Mas de la Dame winery. No explanations of the harvest, the varieties of grape they grow, nor the wine-making process at all. Yes, we got to taste five or six wines, but felt the emphasis was more on selling the product than explaining how it got to the shop. No real experience for us about their work. Overall though, we did enjpy our five hours or so.
