Wine & Truffle
Between December and August, we run this special tour to allow you to combine two esteemed delicacies products in a magic historical place !
Mysterious and coveted from the beginning of time, the truffle provokes more than simple curiosity. Its origins, its scent, its taste and its color render it a “Grande Dame” that is respected the world over. Discover the earthy side of luxury that will stun and delight your senses !
We will meet with the truffle-producing farmer and his truffle hound. He will provide you with the proper tools and show off the special skills of his faithful friend and we will follow him in the hills to look for the “Black Diamond”. On the way he will let you in some of his secrets, we will see his dog in action and if we are lucky, he might be able to dig out one or several truffles (but there is no guarantee since it is a rare product).
Late morning we will leave our truffle-producing farmer to go to a magnificent 17th century “hôtel particulier” and its French style gardens for a truffle and wine based lunch. During the meal, the wine waitress will give us 3 different wines to taste and discuss.
After this feast, you will have an hour to stroll around the magnificent village built on top of the hill which has been awarded for “most beautiful villages in France”. We will then go back to Aix en Provence.
This tour runs from December to August.
