House of the Truffle and the Tricastin

An exhibition about truffles. Interpretation boards. Individual audio-tape guides. Find out the secrets of the truffle (Tuber Melanosporum) and the Tricastin area, the top truffle-producing area in France.


In the heart of the Tricastin region, Saint-Paul-Trois-Châteaux has dedicated a showcase to the black diamond, in a house full of character, making it an unmissable place of discovery.
Here, you enter the mysterious world of the black truffle, for which Tricastin is the land of choice. Room by room, you'll unveil the mysteries of the truffle, from its underground formation to its tasting on the plate.
You'll also get a taste of the Tricastin wine region. An exhibition space offers an insight into the region's winegrowing history. At the Caveau des Vignerons, you can discover and taste wines from the Grignan-les-Adhémar PDO. These are offered at the estate price.
The Maison de la Truffe et du Tricastin is the only establishment in the south-east of France to have been awarded the "Site Remarquable du Goût" label.
