If you are looking for something a little different to do whilst in the beautiful Dordogne valley I can highly recommend a home wine tasting evening with Duck and Truffle in Tremolat. It was great fun, informative and Max was clearly passionate about the range of Bergerac wines we tasted and very able to answer our many and varied questions . Not at all pretentious, just a fabulous way to spend a relaxed evening with friends and family.

We were recommended Duck and Truffle when looking for wine tours in Bergerac. The ease of booking was excellent and Max our guide collected us from where we were staying in Couze St Front. Max is very knowledgeable about all the wines in the area and personally knows some of the winemakers in the region. All the vineyards we visited were very helpful and there was no pressure on us to buy anything although we did come home with lots of different bottles. We had a lovely lunch where we dropped off and collected with beautiful views and great food - all arranged by Max and Emma. Two of our group were vegetarians and Max and Emma had made all the arrangements with the restaurant - a great day spent, creating a real French experience. We highly recommend. Thank you.

I arranged a half day tour for a family group of five adults. Max our guide was friendly and informative and tailored the tour perfectly for our group.

We were collected from our villa and taken to visit three very different venues and tasted a wonderful variety of wines. We also had a stop at a beautiful Chateau. All the while Max made recommendations on wines we might like to try, spoke with the producers and translated for us and gave us just the right amount of information about each wine and each producer. It brought the wines to life for us!

My husband and I were delighted when later in the week we dined at a Michelin starred restaurant and found one of the wines we tasted (and purchased!) on their tasting menu. It was lovely to have visited the vineyard and met the producer and we enjoyed our meal all the more. We have, of course, brought a couple of bottles home with us, to reminisce!

Although we did buy a small amount of wine on the tour we were pleased that there was no pressure whatsoever to purchase wine.

Not only did we enjoy the tour we enjoyed Max's company and that made it for us. I would highly recommend Duck and Truffle and wouldn't hesitate to book with them again.

Claire, thank you so much for your wonderful comments. Max had a great time with you on the wine tour - I've added some pictures to this site of your visit to Monbazillac maison du vin. We hope to see you again if/when you next visit the Dordogne. Thanks again. Emma & Max

I am so happy we stumbled upon Duck and Truffle when seeking out wine tours of the Bergerac region. The communication was great and we setup a tour starting with lunch in Tremolat, where Duck & Truffle is located. Max met us at a cute out door cafe - dont miss the duck burger here - where we planned the day. Max is well-versed in the area, the wines, side roads, and has very good relationships with various winemakers in the region. We visited several wineries and in one case were able to get a tour of the property led by the elderly owner....a treat. Max is funny, engaging, and helpful. He speaks various languages from his extensive travel industry background. His wife Emma is very helpful in coordinating the tour for us. They also do in home wine tastings if you are in the Dordogne Valley/Bergerac area as well as longer wine weekends. We hope to return during truffle season one of these days. A great day spent and we highly recommend. Thank you.
