Today, we went on our truffle tour and it was fantastic. The owner of the farm and our guide were so charming. The route to the farm was just lovely with rolling hills of green wheat and just beautiful. It was a fantastic tour finding truffle and eating the truffle tastings with wine and their home grown olive oil. Thank you so much!- Dee C.

Truffle Hunt in Tuscany Program

Have you ever imagined going on a walk in the Tuscan woods with a dog and truffle expert to hunt for truffles? The white truffle, the most precious, aromatic and expensive variety, grows only in Italy from October to December. Its aromas vanish very quickly, within a few days. Therefore the only way to taste high quality truffle is to find it and eat it within a day or two. Other truffles such as the black summer truffle can be hunted in the summer months, as well as the scorzone truffle so the hunt is available all year round.

The truffle hunt is an exciting and memorable experience, a sacred yet secret ritual rarely witnessed by outsiders and a special way to see Tuscany from a different prospective. Your truffle hunting day will start early in the morning, in the Tuscan Crete Senesi, among Italys most important truffle areas. Your local professional truffle hunter (and of course his dog!) will meet you in the morning and accompany you on silent paths through the crisp, misty morning air of the Crete. You will look, listen, and learn and in the end you will almost certainly find the precious tuberous, a moment of great excitement.

The truffle hunt lasts about an hour and a half. Then it's time to move to the farm and wine cellar for a tasting of local products and a guided sensorial analysis of truffle. Lunch at the farm is available on request at an extra charge of 30 to 60 Euros per person depending on which type of truffle you will be tasting. Please inquire for more information.
