Go behind the scenes of the world's most secretive business. Take a tour of a Provençal truffle plantation, learn how truffles are cultivated and truffle dogs are trained, and go on a hunt for France's elusive "black gold" with professional hunters who know all the tricks of the trade.
You'll be regaled with stories of successes and sabotage, and learn to tell the difference between the different types of French truffles and the inferior Chinese counterpart. Tours are followed up with a sampling of fresh truffle hors d'oeuvres, Champagne and a tasting of our Les Pastras olive and truffle oil. A real treat!
And should you decide to purchase a bottle of olive oil as a souvenir, feel good knowing that 50% of the profits go to the One Family orphanage in Haiti.
