Wine tasting and truffle hunting


This is a day trip in 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

A Recent Review of this tour

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
