What you'll do
The get together is in LA MORRA , in the very heart of the Langhe. The " trifolau" Marco, his dog Rocky & and his assistant will welcome you in the meeting area and will provide you with hunting boots, if needed. The hunting session will last approximately 2 hours, afterwards directions and assistance will be given for a wine tasting at one of the wineries near by. The wine tasting and tour will last about 1 hour - 1 hour 1/2. Once the tasting is done, you will be directed towards a typical restaurant/trattoria in the area where you will enjoy a traditional langhe meal and you will have the unique opportunity, if desired, to bring your own truffle to the restaurant and eat it there, at a much more convenient price than most other restaurants that serve their own. This whole experience lets you immerse yourself in the real culture and tradition of the Langhe , as it unfolds in the beautiful frame of secular woods, hazelnuts fields and vineyards. It's the uniqueness of a Unesco site! During the period May-September it will be black truffle hunting During the period September-November it will white truffle hunting
I have been in the hospitality business for the past two years in the Langhe area and I have established relationships with many locals who share my same vision and mission when it comes to quality, attention to details and warmth. The first part of the tour " the truffle hunting" is managed by a historical truffle hunter " trifolau" and his dog Rocky. The wine tasting and lunch take place afterwards in wine bars and restaurants carefully selected.
