Truffles, dogs and a very large pig


Aups is a small, bustling market town in the northern Var, Provence and  it is also the home of the third largest truffle market in France . In this short film we see not only the truffle market in full swing but also demonstrations of various shapes and sizes of truffle hinting dogs and, of course a huge, beautiful pig in full truffle action.

I became captivated with the world of wine whilst on a visit to the Barossa Valley during my gap year in Australia. I went on to join a London wine merchant and studied wine for several years before starting my own wine business at 24. I sold the business aged 30 and went into Telecoms for 15 years, during which time I began cooking up the plan to create Mirabeau.
