Truffle Hunting & Wine Tasting

Enjoy the charming Tuscan countryside and the haunting beauty of the Tuscan forests.

Chianti and truffle tour

Guided Tour in English

Tuscan Truffle in Tuscany is an excellent experience to taste one of the best natural products in the world. While Tuscany is often associated with exceptional wines, it is especially renowned for its truffles. It may come as a surprise to some that San Miniato, a small town in Tuscany, supplies nearly 80% of the world’s precious white truffles.


Highlights
  • Small-Group tour, a maximum of 8 people.
  • Guided 7 hr excursion by our English speaking food and wine expert.
  • Stroll in a true forest of Tuscany to hunt truffles with our professional hunter and her dog.
  • Discover a quality winery in Chianti Classico in an organic winery (with tastings of Chianti, Chianti Classico, Riserva, and Super Tuscans).
  • Learn by a professional Sommelier how to approach wine and olive oil.
  • Enjoy a delicious typical Tuscan meal based on fresh truffles.

 What to expect

You will take part in a once-in-a-lifetime experience and search for truffles with a truffle-hunting dog through the woods of Tuscany. Follow the dog hurriedly through the forest as he sniffs about and experiences the surge of excitement as he starts digging for this edible treasure (white truffles go for nearly $15,000 per kg).

After lunch, will visit a cellar into the region of Chianti. Here you will have the opportunity to experience what is arguably Italy’s most renowned wine, Chianti. Your guide will teach you everything you need to know about the process of winemaking and the techniques involved in attaining a better appreciation of the wine through the tasting.
