What you'll do

After a short walk we will arrive in a marvelous wooded area of ​​five hectares. The truffle seeker's paradise. Together with Trifolao Davide and his trustworthy lagotta dog, we will enter the woods rich in a multitude of different plants. The session offers a translator, if necessary.
The experience continues in search of truffles. Together we will learn to recognize the signals of the dog, to clean the ground to get closer to the truffle and to recognize its varieties in the TOTAL RESPECT OF NATURE, trying to leave everything as it is.
The search lasts about 2 hours and a half. If we are lucky we will find the truffle (or truffles). After removing the mud from our boots and enjoying an aperitif in the open air (a good glass of wine in the woods warms the heart!) I will take you to a typical Langa trattoria. The experience will end with a traditional lunch. Buon Appetito!
The trattoria menu is already decided and does not include truffles and drinks. If you bring with you the truffle found along with the trifolao there will be no cost for the "grated". You can also decide whether to buy truffles directly at the restaurant!

Meet your host, Luci

Host on Airbnb since 2016
  • Identity verified
I am a tour guide from Bra, the capital of Slow Food and I know these lands very well, in recent years thanks to my work and passion for this land I have established relationships with many locals who share my same vision and mission about quality, attention to detail and warmth. The first part of the "truffle hunting" tour is managed by a "trifolau" truffle hunter and his dog.
The aperitif will take place at the end of the walk surrounded by a breathtaking view while lunch takes place in carefully selected restaurants. Consider me your Piedmontese friend. My style is informal and interactive. I leave a lot of freedom to those who participate in my tours so that they can fully enjoy the experience and the company of their traveling companions.

More tips

WARNING: this is a truly unique experience! The woods in which I will accompany you along with the trifolao and its trusty lagotto dog are the true places of research for the white truffle of Alba. This is not a simulation but a real truffle hunt.
