The winery is a big operation with weddings, celebrities arriving at the helipad etc. The truffle hunting is the real deal if you care about this sort of thing. We had a superlative time with the guide and a translator as well as the two adorable dogs. Food and wine tasting ( including truffles) was very good and gave a cross section from Chianti Classico to Brunello to a few super tuscans. Highly recommended!

Fantastic tour that I would highly recommend. Having an experienced truffle hunting work with his dogs in front of you was such a treat. We learned so much and will never forget the experience. After truffle hunting, we enjoyed a fantastic lunch featuring local cuisine and truffles, along with a generous wine tasting. If you like truffle/dogs/wine/learning then don’t hesitate to book this experience!

Original activity that cannot be practiced everywhere in the world. A passionate and exciting truffle hunter, two greedy and efficient dogs, a gifted and friendly Italian-English translator and cooks capable of cooking excellent dishes including a truffle lasagna just waouuuuw contributed to the success of this activity. We spent twelve days in Liguria and Tuscany and that day was undoubtedly the highlight of our stay! Recommended again and again!
