Truffle Hunting in Provence
Life of Riley might not be able to offer gold at the end of rainbows, but we know where to find Black Gold with this Truffle Hunting adventure in Provence!
In France’s most beautiful region - where the aroma of lavender fills the air and bees weigh themselves down with pollen - you’ll head off the beaten track for an afternoon of the nation’s most secretive countryside tradition: A truffle-hunting tour followed by a sampling of fresh truffle hors d'oeuvres, Champagne and a tasting of olive and truffle oil straight from the source.
There’s Gold in them thare hills… Black Gold!
Unlike most gold prospectors, Franco-American couple Johann and Lisa Pepin swapped jobs in finance in America for the fresh air, starry nights and organic farming of Southern France. And now, Johann and Lisa invite you to tour their Provençal truffle plantation, learn how truffles are cultivated and truffle dogs are trained before joining the hunt for France's elusive ""black gold”.
Perfect for romantic summer afternoons, or year-round fun for the whole family, professional truffle hunters will teach you the tricks of the trade and how to properly clean, store and cook with truffles with delicious recipes.
If you don’t want your time there to end, you can always try the summer Grape Stomp, learn boules, head out fishing or go mushroom foraging in the forest. You can even take a little slice of Provence home with you in the form of hand-made truffle oil, truffle honey, truffle salt, olive oil and family-made wines and Champagne!
