Bonvillars - Gastronomy & Wine
On the last Saturday in October, the village of Bonvillars near Lake Neuchâtel holds the number one truffle market in Switzerland. A must for all foodies, this unique event dedicated to the Jura truffle is a chance to discover, buy and savour this exceptional fungus!
Bonvillars is already known for its wines but is now also known for its truffle market! This event dedicated to the Swiss truffle brings together truffle growers, chefs, dog handlers and, of course, luxury food lovers and has quickly become an event not to be missed.
Throughout the day, several kilos of truffles are sold to visitors, who learn more about this exceptional product through talks, demonstrations and above all tastings!
Very popular with visitors, enthusiastic handlers demonstrate the talents of their truffle-seeking dogs several times a day. And for a more unique experience, enjoy a cheese fondue with truffle fresh, served in one of the many horse-drawn carriages. A chance to explore the region of Bonvillars while at the same time enjoying a typical dish!
