PROGRAM
We will be greeted by Matteo ,the owner of the farm , for whom truffle hunting has been in the family for generations. Sipping on our coffee, he will illustrate the programme and the itinerary of the day .
We will make our way on foot to the natural truffle locations. During the walk Matteo, accompanied by his dogs, will tell us the secrets of this precious tuber and then we will take part in the hunt and unearthing of the truffles with the small spade.
The walk will last about two hours and on returning to the farm, in front of the fireplace or outside in the sun, weather permitting, we will have a truffle based lunch accompanied by excellent local wines produced by the nearby organic wine producers.
The only problem is that you will not want leave this paradise!
