Day dedicated to Bugey gastronomy and its treasures: Bugey truffle and AOC wines. The gastronome Jean-Antelme Brillat-Savarin, the emblematic figure of Bugey will also have no more secrets for you.
10am - Discovery of the AOC wines and the Bugey truffle at the Caveau des Demoiselles in Andert-Condon.
During this conference, Mr. Éric Hell, president of the Syndicat des Trufficulteurs du Bugey, will reveal the history of the truffle from its beginnings until today. The production techniques as well as the use of the black diamond in cooking will be discussed.
Then, Mr. Patrick Guillermin, winegrower and manager of the Caveau des Demoiselles will present his estate and his AOC du Bugey wines.
This moment of sharing will end with the tasting of these two gastronomic gems of Bugey Sud.
Due to the seasonality of truffle production and in order to offer only fresh quality products, the tasting of truffle toast is only possible from November 15th to the end of February. Outside this period, only the conference and the tasting of AOC wines are possible.
