Moulin du Calanquet is based in Saint-Rémy de Provence, where originally the Greeks and Romans grew olive trees. In the area there is a large stone slab intended to support an olive grinding wheel from Roman times. 
But the olive plantations painted by Van Gogh suffered from periodic frosts, especially those in 1889 and 1956. After the catastrophic frost of 1956, the last remaining mills became oil merchants in Saint-Remy-de-Provence and the region, then ceased to operate. 
In 2000, two young Saint-Rémois in their twenties, Anne and Gilles Brun, brothers and sisters, decided to (re)open an oil mill in Saint-Rémy de Provence. Since then, they have been producing five types of monovarietal, single-estate extra virgin olive oils, and delicious condiments made from them.
