Period: Any time
Location: Piedmont, Alba area
What is included: guided tour with direct experience of truffle hunting, accompanied by the “trifulao“, professional truffle hunter, and his trained dogs.
In the area around Alba, city of truffles and capital of the Langhe, you can experience the fascinating tradition of truffle hunting. Join a “trifulao” and their dogs in the research of the most precious product of this beautiful land. Learn all about truffles, their varieties and the history of truffle hunting. Make your truffle experience complete with some tasting of truffle-based products and local wine in a little and historical rural cottage, the “ciabot“.
*The hunt is simulated, meaning that some truffles have been hidden in advance by the hunter. This practice, also used to train dogs, ensures that at least the hidden truffles will be found during your experience. If you are lucky, you will also find spontaneous truffles.
