Italy’s Piedmont region is known as a gastronomic capital. On this private truffle hunting and Barolo wine tasting tour from Alba, you will go behind-the-scenes and see how they are produced.

Truffle hunting from Alba

The tour begins with meeting your driver or tour guide (see below rates). Transfer to the woods and follow the truffle hunter and his dog on a leisurely 60-90 minutes walk and see if you unearth any treasures.


Learn how truffles grow as a full presentation of the soil of the Piedmont region and the environment of the Langhe hills will be provided.


Meet Piemonte can supply a limited number of rubber boots to be asked at time of booking. Otherwise trekking boots are recommended for uneven, slippery and muddy trails.


Truffle hunting lasts approximately 1-1.5 hours and it is held during the season of the white truffle of Alba (end of September to January) and also in summer for the black truffle called “scorzone”.
