Langhe truffle hunting and wine tasting
- Take part in the hunting of the Alba truffle, a product appreciated throughout the world
- Live a 360° experience that includes searching the woods and tasting truffles
- Learn all about the history and characteristics of truffles directly from the truffle hunter
Enjoy the search of the Alba white truffle, appreciated all over the world. The Alba white truffle season runs from October to December, while during the summer months you can enjoy the black truffle, famous throughout the world for its unique aroma.
Through this tour you will have the opportunity to live a 360° experience, starting from the search in the woods and leading to the tasting of truffles paired with typical products of the Langhe. You will be accompanied by the 'Trifulao' (a truffle hunter expert) and his dog through the hills, which are now a declared UNESCO World Heritage Site, walking in the woods and digging in search of the precious tuber.
The trifulao, through many funny anecdotes, will tell you about the characteristics, history and techniques of truffle hunting. The experience will end with a visit to an old cellar and a tasting of the great Langhe wines (including Barolo), accompanied by a chopping board of cold cuts and tastings of black truffle products.
