Wine tasting and truffle hunting
This is a day trip to the truffle area in Piemonte, famous to the real connoisseurs of fine wines and food.
On arriving to the Langhe area with my driver, we will meet up with an expert trifolao (that stands for truffle digger) and his loyal "assistant" and will spend approx. 2 hours hunting truffles.
Stop for a quick bite anywhere our stomachs will take us.
Wine tasting of the area's pride and joy: Barolo and its family.
Return drive to Torino.
THIS DAY TRIP STARTS AND ENDS IN TORINO.
The itinerary foresees 2 activities: wine tasting and truffle hunt and both of the above activities take place in the Barolo or Barbaresco terroirs.
Please take note that white truffles are harvested as from late September to February therefore if you choose to do the truffle hunt outside this limited time period, you will be hunting for black truffles.
Please take note that this is an estimate agenda of the tour, inclusive of highlights. I can customize this tour to your personal interests, so please let me know your preferences.
I may occasionally find it necessary to modify the stated itinerary/supplier due to unforeseen circumstances, availability, or in order to improve the trip. In the event that I alter any part(s) of the itinerary, I will substitute a service or supplier of equal or greater quality.

We had a wonderful day with Carol! First we visited Lola, the truffle dog, and his master and went into the woods and meadows to hunt for truffles. It was a great "adventure" and Carol explained (or translated) everything about truffels for us. And --- we (Lola, of course) really found a white truffle!! After that we had wonderfull lunch, visited a huge sparkling wine cellar and castle with a big wine shop. A fantastic day with Carol we will not forget. Thank you! Chris
