Full description
Italy's Piedmont region is a gastronomic hotspot, and on this private tour, you'll have the opportunity not just to taste but to hunt for one of its most famous culinary products: the truffle.  Go behind-the-scenes and join a truffle hunter and his dog on a walk through the woods in search of these hidden treasures. Depending on the season, this 1-1.5-hour hunt will lead you in search of the White Truffle of Alba (in season from late September to January) or the black Scorzone truffle (in season during the Summer months). Truffle hunting involves walking on paths that can be slippery, muddy, and occasionally steep, so appropriate footwear is strongly recommended.  After the truffle hunt, learn the secrets of Barolo winemaking in a visit to a family-run winery. Sample 4-5 types of Barolo and discover what makes this local wine special.
