If you like truffles and you want to experience food delicacy with excellent wines I recommend this special wine and food tour.
The tour starts from Florence and will bring you off the beaten path of Tuscany, which is very well appreciated for white and black truffles. Once at the place, a truffle hunter will take you to a walk through the woods along with his dog. This is an experience open to everyone love wilderness and trekking even if is not a difficult stroll.
The walk will end in a small farm, where you will have the chance to combine fresh truffles and wine. Once you will be refreshed from the stroll in the wood you will be sitting around a table for a 3-course lunch with the fresh truffles just hunted.
On request, it is possible to stop at the second winery set in the Chianti Classico wine region for a deep wine tasting of excellent wines.
We were a group of five that thoroughly enjoyed our day with our great guide, Matteo. He was personable, interested in his guests, and a had a great rapport with the truffle and winery folks. He was a professional sommelier and knowledgeable about a wide breadth of topics - enough to answer our questions for an entire day of touring! The farm that you visit for truffle hunting is about an hour outside of the city, so be prepared to spend some time driving about. The experience was authentic though - you really just go out with a woman and her truffle-sniffing dog tromping through her backyard. Lunch was delicious and the winery after was exceptional. Matteo was an excellent ambassador for Italy and we highly recommend booking this tour!
