At the foot of the Mont Ventoux in the heart of the Monts de Vaucluse,
four generations of the Espenon family have fostered a passion for the black truffle, Tuber Melanosporum.
In 1950, armed with a legacy and a passion passed on by his ancestors, Gilbert Espenon decided to market
the precious black fungus. Offering his truffles in the market at Carpentras and to restaurateurs and private individuals alike, Gilbert Espenon then decided in the 1980s to develop a range of preserved truffles.
Benoit Michelet, grandson of Gilbert Espenon and heir to the family business, has now taken up the reins, thereby perpetuating the fundamental values passed on by his grandfather.
“It is our knowledge of the terroir, coupled with patience and rigour, that enables us to cultivate this fungus, which is as capricious as it is enigmatic. Acquired over the years, our experience and expertise enable us to offer you truffles of great quality. ”
