Truffle Tour

Borgata Merlotti 21, La Morra CN

This is the most exciting of experiences for truffle enthusiasts. A hunter accompanied by his dog will lead the group into the woods to seek out the precious underground tuber, guided only by the dog´s sense of smell and the intuition resulting from years of experience. The hunt will be preceded by a meeting with an expert, who will provide all the information essential to understand how, where and why truffles grow.

The truffle, the wine and the food.
A region which offers special products , where every village has his own speciality.
The outdoor tourism offers a special atmosphere to stay in family, for leisure activities or to enjoy the life.
The past is always present visible in this fascinating territory which is part of the UNESCO world heritage.

Good morning,
we hope that you appreciate our initiative and send you herewith a short presentation of our activity.
Marco is a“trifolao“ (truffle hunter) from La Morra / Piedmont.
He organizes truffle hunts with his dogs for more than 15 years, directly in the woods, called “tartufaia”.
An activity which is declared UNESCO heritage since the end of 2021.

It is an activity directed to everybody, interested in the nature and passionate in truffle.
Since a lot of years we welcome couples, groups of friends or business groups and family with children, living with us an unforgettable authentic experience devoted at the truffle and the delicacies of the Langhe.
Also groups celebrating birthdays, anniversary or stag nights appreciate our program.

The tour lasts approximately two hours, passing vineyards, fields of hazelnuts and so arriving in the private “tartufaia”. The Tour can be accompanied by a translator who will explain how and where to search for these rare truffles also in English, German, French or Russian language.

At the end of the Tour it is possible to organize a brunch in the vineyards for groups with 15 people (or more). The brunch will take place directly at the end of the truffle woods and gives our guests the possibility to remain again for a while in the nature.

Furthermore I work in cooperation with restaurants allowing its clients to bring the truffles they might find (and buy) and to taste them with typical dishes.

Our guests also appreciate the “truffle/wine/food”, including the truffle hunt excursion, the visit of a winery with a wine tasting and lunch or dinner with local plates perfect to taste fresh truffle.

In the summer of 2021 we started also with our picnic in Langa.
After the truffle hunt our guests will receive an environmentally friendly box with a picnic for 2 people or the whole family ( to book separate).
Giving them some indications for nice panoramic places also with tables and benches, our guests can stay again outside to enjoy the nature and the Langa.
We recommend to bring a blanket.

In cooperation with a new partner we can offer you also a new option, the “truffle-nut” including 2 of the main delicacies from our area in one experience.
So after the truffle hunt with Marco you will go to visit a hazelnut farmer who shows you his company and explains you how to cultivate and elaborate the hazelnuts.
After the visit in the hazelnut field they will offer you some of their products like hazelnut cake and toasted hazelnut to taste.

We accept reservations for minimum 2 people for an excursion arriving until maximum 15 people in one group. We can also manage also larger groups, dividing them in smaller groups.
They do the truffle hunt excursion in the same time on different routes.
After the Tour it´s possible to buy fresh truffle (not inclusive in the price).
