Description

“One fruit… one oil.

Artisan oil maker Jean-Marc Montegottero, with the help of an entire team, keeps the practice of making virgin oils from 100% fruit alive. Their expertise involves optimising traditional production methods while still maintaining their artisanal elements.

In 1981, Nedda and Dario Montegottero, Jean-Marc’s parents, bought an old ironmongery. In the back room, they found an oil mill dating back to the 19th century that had not been used for seven years. Aged 18, after studying to be an agricultural technician, Jean-Marc decided to bring the workshop back to life. It was time to make the dream a reality. Dario, who was a mechanic by trade, began renovating the equipment and the building. Next came the matter of learning the trade: Jean-Marc called on the services of Gustave Pascal, an oil producer from Isère, to show him the ropes.

In January 1982, Jean-Marc set up a local seasonal business that revolved around made-to-order sales: i.e. locals from Beaujolais would bring their fruit to the mill and leave with oil.

In October 1987, the trade became a permanent fixture and they began selling to the first French chefs. It would take five years of work and perseverance for the quality of these virgin oils to be recognized. In fact, around this time, France was much more interested in industrial agriculture and finding the cheapest cooking oil. Therefore, the Huilerie Beaujolaise turned its sights to Germany, which had a greater interest in natural virgin oils.

Nowadays, Jean-Marc Montegottero strives to combine tradition with modernity and has known just how to win over big names in gastronomy. Famous faces in the sphere of French and international cuisine, from the Relais Château, now use his oils and vinegars.

Huilerie Beaujolaise has been recognised “”Producteur Artisan de qualité”” by the Collège Culainaire de France.”
