Wine production is a cherished tradition in France, Italy, Spain, California, Chile and now all over the world. There are events commemorating the annual harvest and every step in the winemaking process. Lost in all the commotion, however, is a little secret: Once all the wine has been produced, the winemakers gather all the seeds, dry them and bring them to their local oil mill.
There, a somewhat arduous process begins. Since the seeds are so tiny and abrasive, powerful machines are required to crush them.
The process is very time-consuming since the seeds contain less than 10% oil. Imagine the vast quantity of seeds needed to produce one drum of oil! All La Tourangelle oils are 100% all-natural, expeller-pressed and free of any chemicals.
