Truffle Hunt and Barbaresco Wine Tour

In the morning we collect you from your accommodation at about 09.30am. We then take you to the truffle hunter’s farmhouse, where he will give you some information about truffles, where and how they grow etc.

You will then meet the specially trained truffle dogs and go into their private woods to search for truffles. After ’the hunt’ you will have a tasting of Truffle with local Salami, Cheese and Barbera D’Asti DOCG wine.

After lunch we take you to 1 or 2 wineries in the Barbaresco area, where you can taste wines from different Cru vineyards and vintages including the famous Barbaresco wine.

White Truffle and Wine Experience with home cooked lunch

We collect you from your accomodation and drive through beautiful Monferrato landscape to the Truffle hunters home.

This really is a unique and authentic experience! In the morning you go for a 'Real' truffle hunt with the truffle hunter and his truffle dog in their local woods. 

Afterwards you will have lunch at the farmhouse, which will be a traditional home cooked Piemontese meal served with fresh White Truffle and wines. The truffle hunter is also great winemaker, so you can also visit the cellar where you can try a selection of wines from the Monferrato region, including some high quality Barbera D'Asti DOCG wines. 

There is also the option of making the fresh pasta for your lunch at the farmhouse before the truffle hunt. After we drop you back at your accomodation at approximately 4pm.

Alba White Truffle Festival and Barolo Wine Tour

If you are lucky enough to be able to come during the months of October and November, you must definitely take a trip to Alba and visit the White Truffle fair there.

If you want to make the most of the day, see all the places of interest in the town and have the opportunity to sample many of the wonderful wines on offer (without the worry of parking, finding your way and driving home), then why not let us take you there and organise everything for you?

If you want to do a full day tour, in the afternoon we can stop off at one of the prestigious local cantinas near Alba. Here we would take a tour of their beautiful cellars and sample 3 or 4 of their amazing wines afterwards.
