Truffle hunting is a unique and fascinating experience that you need to try once in your lifetime! Together with a truffle expert, called "Trifolau", and his dog, you will enjoy a real search for gold. You have to know that in Monferrato and in Piedmont, white truffle is considered a real treasure.

What to expect from Truffle Hunting in Monferrato

At your arrival you’ll be welcomed by the Trifolau and his happy dog who will accompany you through the enchanting  woods.

The experience is not planned, that means that truffles have not been previously dislocated in the woods, so it could take a little bit time before the experienced dog is able to sniff the precious treasure. 

But when the magic happens the emotion is huge. You will start to dig and pull, with the suitable tools provided, to unearth the truffle.

Duration of Truffle Hunting

The part related to the experience in the woods can take from 2 to 3 hours and the reward for your “hard” work will be delicious. At the end you will enjoy a lunch or a dinner with a tasting menu with truffles and mushrooms specialties, pairing with the traditional Monferrato Barbera wine.
