Piedmont: Truffles, Cheese & Wines
This excursion will give you the opportunity to discover the gastronomic treasures of the Langhe.
A stimulating truffle hunt with dogs, a visit to an educational Barolo vineyard with an adjoining wine cellar and a tasting of typical Piedmontese cheeses: these are the three highlights of the day trip to the Langhe. After meeting your four-legged friends and with the help of their infallible sense of smell, you will search for one of the most expensive specialities in the world, the truffle. A visit to an educational Barolo vineyard is followed by a wine cellar where, at 12.30 p.m., you will be able to taste a minimum of 3 types of wine paired with typical cheeses and other appetisers, such as salami, and, if your appetite doesn't subside, you can enjoy truffle pasta, salad and dessert. At approximately 3.30 p.m., we continue towards the Langhe, to Alba, a characteristic place known for its medieval atmosphere. In lieu of a visit to Alba, there will also be a visit to the Vicoforte Sanctuary. Return to the hotel at around 5 p.m.
