The secret of the watermill

Roue Moulin

See how walnut and hazelnut oil is produced traditionnally at the Chanaz mill. Built in 1868, le moulin de Chanaz is one of the village’s most spectacularly restored sites. 

Its bucketwheel moves the gear machinery and the millstone. This ancestral know-how produces high quality oils proper to french culinary tradition, a quality obtained by the miller’s knowledge and expertise.
