Truffle hunting – the black diamond | BKWine TV

Truffle hunting with a dog (or a pig) is a very special experience. The black Perigord truffle, Tuber Melanosporum, The Black Diamond, hides in the ground and only a trained dog (or more rarely, a pig) can find it – one of the rarest gastronomic delicacies, used in small quantities in luxury cuisine.

This is a clip from one of our truffle hunting tours where we go looking for truffles in Perigord, in Provence or in the Rhone Valley. The truffle master also explains the different qualities of the truffle and what makes a good one.

Come join us for a truffles experience! BKWine Tours organises wine & truffles tours where we go hunting for the rare mushroom. Visit our website:
