At the beginning of the years 2000, I received a phone call from a person from Plounéour-Ménez. She announces that she has an old wine press… to honey that she wants to sell.

I go to this locality, accompanied by Daniel TROCHU. The saleswoman presents the press. It states that the object dates from the 16th and that it used to be used by the merchants in the vicinity of Pleyber-Christ to collect the honey. It’s a four-foot table, the center of the tray gets the bags. A first bleed in the wood makes the trick that receives the dirt, the pieces of wax. A second bleed follows the border and allows the extraction of the honey.
