This was a highlight of our trip! The family-run business left us feeling well cared for and treated. The weather could have been better but didn't dampen the experience...the guide was informative; the dogs great fun to interact with; the food and wine absolutely delicious! We had a very skeptical member in attendance and even she found it to be a highlight of the trip! I could not recommend this more than to say, when in Tuscany, be sure to make this tour a part of your itinerary.

Well organized and well thought out event

The instruction started immediately after we arrived. The staff all spoke English very well. The winery is professionally managed as an event location. The truffle search in the private oak forest was well prepared and well done by Nicola. The subsequent wine tasting with accompanying menu was presented very nicely in excellent German by Donato. It was worth it overall.

This place was amazing, very accommodating and full of information about the truffles in the area. I would recommend this place to anyone as they have many other activities other than truffle hunting... Cooking classes, wine tastings, horseback riding. Very well organized and maintained to preserve a family feel to the vineyards. Excellent job guys!
