Four-hour tour discovering two treasures of Piemonte


Begin this four-hour tour driving to the truffle hunting location outside Alba and continue by car around the area of production of Barolo wine. Transport is not included but if you need it, tell me the number of people and the pick-up location so I will send you a quote for the transport cost. Meet the truffle hunter and his inseparable dog in an easily accessible wood, to witness the art of finding truffles, discovering places where they grow and other secrets behind the scene. You will be charmed by the strong relation between the dog and the man helping them taking out truffles from the soil, if any! Later, drive around the scenic hill-district of Barolo, all the way to a local family-run winery where wine is aged in oak barrels. A tasting of at least four wines, including Barolo, will end our day before driving back to the starting point.

A Recent Review of this tour

We had a very nice day with marco in barolo and winetasting in bussia. Marco is well educated with good comunication skills and excellent language. Charming truffelhunter with a nice dog, but we all got a sensation that the hunt was arranged with prepositioned truffels. But anyway It was a nice trip. Many greetings ellen
