Our truffle hunting experience with Mario was definitely the highlight of our roadtrip around Piedmont. It turned out that it was just my partner and I that day so it became a rather special private event! The half day spent was perfect, from meeting Mario and his friendly dogs Eda and Maga to the exciting truffle hunt in the depths of the forests, finishing with a delicious home cooked 3-course lunch — we never had so much truffle in our lives! Mario’s home is stylishly and tastefully decorated and a wonderful place to be in. He is very knowledgable and genuinely passionate about truffles, besides being exceptionally entertaining and humorous (btw Mario’s English is amazing). It felt like we were spending time with an old friend. We enjoyed every minute of this authentic and unforgettable experience and would highly recommend to anyone who is interested in/wants to learn more about this skilled art and profession! Grazie mille Mario— we wish you all the best with your future plans 🙂

A wonderful guide, Gulio, two beautiful, friendly truffle hunting dogs, a great overview and education of truffles, wonderful conversation, beautiful views, a walk in the woods, excitement of finding rare truffles and to finish it off……..an amazing lunch with and abundance of truffles, good wine and more interesting conversation.
I spent a week on holiday in the Langhe in June, in a week we visited many beautiful cities like Asti, Alba and Turin. Also on the weekend we booked for a wine tour in Barolo and on Sunday we tried the wonderful truffle hunting experience, we tasted typical Piedmontese dishes based on white and black truffles. Experience to try !!
I am passionate about black and white truffles, I love the taste and all the dishes that are prepared with truffles. Every year I travel to Italy to buy the best truffles, this year I booked the truffle hunting tour Barolo and it was a lot of fun and I learned many things about truffles. I already knew where to buy truffles and the price of white truffles, now I have discovered where they grow, where to find them and how to eat them. Fantastic!
