What to expect

Bring pleasure to your senses with the tastes and scents of the Mediterranean, while experiencing a gourmet journey through the blue and green Istria, known by the ancient Romans as a royal pantry. Few ingredients and a lot of imagination become gourmet assets such as truffles, paired with the globally-known olive oils, Istrian wines Malvazija, Merlot and you will be equally amazed by the landscape full of hills, fairytale towns, vineyards and olive groves. Come closer to the simple Istrian life philosophy even if you are not a passionate gourmand.

You will embark on this adventure in the company of a host and one excellent tracking dog. This adventure will make anyone willing to dive into the secrets of Motovun forest and truffle hunting, while going through thick bushes and branches, will make you feel all the charm of hunting. A prize will be waiting at the end of the hunt: tasting on the family estate, where truffles lead the way and where the explorers can enjoy truffle products, the most famous aphrodisiac in the world, truffle frittata, fine truffle dessert and good wine.
