ROBERTO TAPIA DEL VALLE
It is hard to put into words how much my wife and I enjoyed our truffle and wine tour this past August. Raffaella and Francesca (and her family) made us feel like we were part of their family. The whole experience was so unique (especially the truffle hunting part of it). People that enjoy this kind of thing usually go to wineries - but going truffle hunting with "Choco" (their incredible truffle hunting dog) and a true truffle specialist (Francesca) was a whole other level. During our trek, Francesca taught us so much about the region, their wines, and their way of life. It was incredible. The meal they prepared for us was next-level cooking and the truffle portions, as well as wine pours, were really really generous!! We had lunch at their beautiful family home, at their table. They even sat with us at times and even brought a cake and sang happy birthday to my wife. They were incredibly kind to us. We ended our visit at a nearby winery ("Fattoria San Michele a Torri"). The people there were terrific again, and they taught us a lot about their wines and wine in general. Once again, it is hard to explain how unique this experience was and I would strongly recommend it to anyone that can appreciate the Italian culture.
