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 menu.
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.
Our tours run Wednesday to Saturday from 10.00 - 18.00. Max collects you from your accommodation and shares his local knowledge about Bergerac wines, the different terroirs and the rich history of the vines. Plus, being Italian, he provides his comparison between the Perigord Black Truffle and the Alba White Truffle.
Price for up to 4 people (total price) is €260 excluding lunch (c.€45 pp) and truffle degustation costs (€20 pp).
He has more than 25 years experience in Relais & Châteaux and Michelin-starred restaurants across Europe and the Far-East. Thanks to his travelling he is multi-lingual in 5 languages and has a passion for food and wine.
"I've always been surrounded by wine - I grew up on a vineyard in Piedmont, North-West Italy and now live in the heart of the Dordogne surrounded by Bergerac wines. I've had the opportunity to taste and visit some of the best, and also lesser known vineyards of these regions. As well as living in and around vineyards, I've worked in the food and wine industry for over 25 years and passed a sommelier course in Italy. In 2016, I changed my profession and no longer work in restaurants giving me more time to share my wine passion through Duck & Truffle".
