Truffle hunt and Barolo

Description

Highlights

  • Take part in a truffle hunt in the wood;
  • Boutique Barolo winery tour comparing different types of Barolo;
  • Private round-trip transit is included, if option is selected.

Italy’s Piedmont region is known as a gastronomic capital. On this private tour, you won’t just get to taste some of its most famous culinary products—you’ll go behind-the-scenes and see how they’re produced.

 

First, join a truffle hunter and his dog on a walk, and see if you unearth any treasures. Hunting for white or black truffles involves walking on paths which can be slippery, muddy and occasionally steep: we recommended trekking boots. A limited number of rubber boots is available and must be requested at time of booking.

 

The hunt 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 to hunt the black truffle called “scorzone”.

 

 

Then, transfer to a family-run winery, where you’ll learn how wine is made. Enjoy a premium wine tasting of 4-5 wines and sample different types of Barolo.
