Visit a working farm where you will meet up with your expert truffle hunter and his wonderful dogs. It is doubtlessly thanks to these special animals that truffle hunting is made possible! To help you get the most from you hunt, learn directly from and experienced truffle-hunter and his wealth of information about truffles and where they grow, truffle dogs and the woods and coutnryside where this tradition is made possible.
At the end of your hunt, return to the farm for an authentic traditional cooking class where you will learn to prepare a typical meal with the truffles from your hunt and other excellent local products such as freshly laid eggs from the farms' chickens, home-grown herbs and vegetables, cheese, olive oil and local wines.
Enjoy a pleasant stay and the warm hospitality of an Italian home while learning some of its secrets. After enjoying your freshly prepared lunch on the farm we will make our way to a nearby small organic wine estate, here we will meet the producer and be led around his estate before enjoying a guided wine tasting lesson from the sommelier-owner and learn about the traditions and passion of the winemaking in the area.
The tour is subject to availability and weather conditions, since the dry air in the hottest part of the summer does not enable the dogs to work at their best. In this case, the the tour may be offered in the early afternoon with the wine estate visit first followed by the truffle hunt and an evening cooking class with dinner.
Comfortable clothing and footwear suitable to a hike through the woods whatever the season is highly recommended during the truffle hunt.
