An experience to remember, the white truffle hunt in Tuscany

Would you like to try an authentically Tuscan experience? Take part in a real truffle hunt in our country resort. In the Mugello area the precious tuber began to spread since the sixteenth century, but in the nineteenth century Artusi, a supreme authority of Italian food culture, preferred the white variety to the black one.

Abandon yourself to the infinite nuances of our excellent product during your stay in Tuscany: from mid-October to mid-November we organize white truffle hunt on Saturday or Sunday mornings, if the weather is good.

Our estate includes the natural truffle-ground (tartufaia) of the ancient park of the castle where Monsignor Giovanni della Casa, author of the Galateo, was born in 1503. And it is precisely there that the white truffle hunt still takes place, with special-trained dogs and the spades for the occasion (“vanghetto”).

End your special hunt by purchasing the truffle from the expert truffle hunter or immerse yourself in its aromatics flavors, enjoying it at dinner with our homemade pasta.

Truffle hunting requires reservation in advance and awakens unforgettable emotions.
