Why is the Perigord black truffle called a black diamond and what does it taste like?
It's the shape on the outside of the Perigord black truffle that gives it its famous Black Diamond name.
Join us as we go truffle hunting, truffle tasting and wine tasting - all in one day in the heart of the Dordogne.
Truffle and wine tours
In the morning we join local truffle hunting expert Sebastien and his dog Falco and go in search of the famous Perigord Black Truffle. You'll learn about the different types of truffles, techniques of truffle hunting and enjoy a fabulous truffle tasting.
We then move to Bergerac for a fabulous lunch at La Tour des Vents, a gastronomic restaurant in the heart of the Monbazillac vineyards with exceptional views.
After lunch we visit two vineyards where you'll experience everything from the luminous Bergerac Sec to creamy Monbazillac via Pécharmant, a full bodied red.
