Are you a large group of adults on holiday or holding a dinner party with friends? If you are in the Dordogne, living here or on holiday and want to explore more about Bergerac wines but getting to the vineyards is difficult, then a home wine tasting with Max, Duck & Truffle's wine specialist, may be perfect for you.
We come to your home (there is a small charge outside of a 10km radius of Tremolat) and bring 8 Bergerac wine varieties for you to try:
- 2 Bergerac whites
- 1 Rose
- 3 Red varieties including a Pecharmant which is very specific to this region (read our blog post)
- 1 Sweet wine
- Plus 'guess the colour'. Using black wine glasses you have to simply decide if its red or white. It's much harder than you think!
Tastings take place Monday to Friday, from 18.00-20.00. We provide the wine glasses (so no washing up either) and we provide some nibbles. We also bring tasting guide sheets with space for you to make notes about each wine. At the end of the tasting we leave all the wines with you so you can continue to enjoy them with your dinner.
Max is Duck & Truffle's wine specialist. 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 (Italian, English, French, German and Spanish - plus a little Japanese!) 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".
The price quoted below are for groups up to 10 people. We are more than happy to accommodate larger groups. Please email Emma at firstname.lastname@example.org for a price quote.
The price is fixed for up to 10 people covering 8 wines - €230, complete price (there is a small charge outside of a 10km radius of Tremolat). So if there are only 2 of you it is still the same price, this is because we will still open 8 wines!
