Where truffles are found?
The exact location of the truffle hunting experience can be set within a 45-minutes drive around the town of Alba. The white truffle of Alba grows in a broad area of Piedmont, on the hills called Langhe, Roero and Monferrato.
In fact, the provinces of Asti and Alessandria have wilder woods not affected by industrial sprawl and by massive vine cultivation as in the immediate surroundings of Alba.
Meet Piemonte provides directions to join the truffle hunter and the dog. After parking the car you start walking on a trail in the wood.
