Dates for 2020 to be confirmed
Uzès (30 Gard, Occitanie) hosts its annual Truffle Festival in January.
A weekend trip to The South of France in the month of January can be well worthwhile if you are a truffle fan.
The festival usually culminates on the third Sunday of the month, when, in the appropriately named “Place aux Herbes” from 09h00 to 17h30 you can celebrate the truffle by buying, tasting or learning about the tuber and how to cook with it. The local wine (Vin de Pays Duché d’Uzès) is also on hand to assist digestion and enjoyment.
Local restaurants celebrate truffle-themed menus throughout the month.
Throughout the weekend:
Truffle Mass in the Cathedral of Uzès
Truffle trails by Bicycle
Scrubland walking tours
Wine tastings and pairings
Historic Stone Sanctuary 15km from the fashionable market town of Uzès in the Languedoc region of Southern France.
Recently renovated self-contained apartment on the ground floor of a traditional 17th c. Provençal village house.
