Hunting for Truffles in Piemonte
The Langhe region of northern Italy is quite simply the epicentre of gourmet delights. Journey through the diverse cultures and terrains of the area, sipping exquisite wine and unearthing precious ‘white gold’ along the way.
Partake in a demonstration of the traditional dégorgement of a vintage cuvee by hand. The cellar master will keep your glass topped up as you dine on Michelin-star food. Then head out to the picturesque rolling hills of Monforte d’Alba, a charming hilltop town with windy streets and historic buildings overlooks the far-reaching landscape of grape vines – a tranquil setting for a wine tasting.
Spend a morning in the woods with a truffle expert, a Trifulau. Learn the habits of dog and master in uncovering these priceless subterranean gems before you sample the intense flavours of white truffles. The chef will explain the characteristics of this most coveted and expensive fungi.
Float gently above the rolling hills during a sunrise hot air balloon flight, then round off a perfect long weekend with an unforgettable private dinner on a panoramic terrace with a breath-taking view.
