the products of the Olive Tree & Bees
As you may know, 8 hectares of olive trees are planted around our vineyards. They are maintainedthroughout the year by Didier, olive growerand operator of the oil mill, “Lo Moulinet”, located in Puisserguier.
Three varieties of olives are used to make different products.
– table olives with La Lucques, a variety from Languedoc recognizable by its singular crescent moon shape.
– olive oil with the varieties Picholine, native of the Gard, and Olivière, the most widespread.
In the heart of the Soustre forest, nearly 5 million bees are buzzing, gathering nectar from the flowers of the scrubland. Their favorite flowers are thyme, thistleand oregano. It is our beekeeper, Benoît, who has set up his hives in a clearing in the Soustres forest and takes care of our friends the bees. It is especially him, which extracts the invaluable nectar: the Honey of Garrigue. This honey is certified Organic Agriculture.
The Confits-tures of Aurélie’s Cauldron
One would dream of falling into this cauldron of delights as Aurélie’s preparations, based on fruits from the Hérault, Gardor Roussillonregions, are so tastyand well balanced.
Everything is designed to promote short circuits (fruits, jars, labels) and taste (maturity, sugar content, cooking).
No standardization in the recipe, the sugar level is adapted to each fruit and at the time of each harvest (measurement of the sugar level with a refractometer) and the jams are made without added pectin.
The Wine Confits
Have you ever heard of wine confit?
It is made from finished wine according to Aurélie’s own recipe. It is the singular touch of the cheese platters, the ideal companion of the goatand the ewein particular. But, it is also the friend of terrinesand foie gras, to change a little onion and fig confits. If you wish, you can also eat it as a fruit jelly.
Aurélie elaborates these wine confits* with Merlot, Chardonnayand exclusivelyfor the domain’s boutique, with Grenache Grisde Soustres.
All the aromatic powerof the rosé gris de gris concentrated in a confit only available in our store!
*These products do not contain alcohol, which evaporates during cooking.
Aurélie’s jams are made fromlocal fruits only, full of sunchine and respecting the seasonality of each of them. She makes them using the “grandmother’s recipe” without pection, with the sugar content adapted to the maturity of the harvest and without excessive cooking.
It is very simple, from the first spoon you bite into the flavors!
Right now, enjoy strawberry, apricot & vanilla, nectarinebut also lemon or orange jam picked this winter.
To complete this gustatory journey, Aurélie also proposes :
– thyme and rosemaryconfits (cheeses, terrines)
–candied lemonsin olive oil (seasoning of dishes)
Both are available in our store.
Think about upcycling
You like the design of the honey and jam jars as well the olive oil bottle and you don’t to throw the away.
One solution, reuse them!
