Truffle hunt near Asti

Description

Highlights

  • real truffle hunt in a private wood;
  • add-on the truffle food tasting in the wood;
  • private experience with the hunter and his dog!
  • upgrade to our 4-hour tour Truffle hunt and Barbera wine

 

The white truffle of Alba is not only found in the municipality of Alba, but all along the hills known as Langhe, Roero and Monferrato.

 

In this case, truffle hunting is set in a wood with poplar, oak and willow trees  where humidity and other environment perks are just right for truffles to grow. The location is the countryside between Asti and Nizza Monferrato, far away from traffic and industrial areas.

 

The experience is private, with the truffle hunter and the dog and it lasts about 1 hour and a half.

 

After leaving the car, we take you for a walk in the wood. No particular physical training or strength is required, however, you may occasionally be walking on slipperymuddy,  uneven or steep paths; therefore, it is highly recommended to wear trekking boots or sporty shoes. A very limited number of rubber boots is available, please ask at time of booking.

Truffle tasting in the wood

From 20 € per person. According to availability, we can set up an aperitif in a local restaurant near the truffle wood, consisting of a fried egg with freshly shaved truffles (white or black depending on the season) and a glass of wine. Alternatively, the food tasting includes a selection of truffle products such as spreads on bruschetta, truffle oil and honey, salami, cheese, breadsticks, wine and other local specialties. This is not a lunch but a generous food tasting which will satisfy your mid-morning or mid-afternoon appetite.
