Chianti and truffle tour

Guided Tour in English

 Truffle & Chianti small-group tour in a nutshell

This is a wine and food experience to discover the fascinating world of truffle.  Tuscany produces five different species of truffles so every month of the year we can hunt truffles.  This truffle tour provides an exclusive opportunity to go hunting for this flavorsome tuber in the footsteps of professional truffle hunters and their specially trained dogs of the super cute, highly skilled Lagotto Romagnolo breed.


Highlights
  • Small-Group tour, a maximum of 8 people.
  • Guided 7 hr excursion by our English speaking food and wine expert.
  • Stroll in a true forest of Tuscany to hunt truffles with our professional hunter and her dog.
  • Discover a quality winery in Chianti Classico in an organic winery (with tastings of Chianti, Chianti Classico, Riserva, and Super Tuscans).
  • Learn by a professional Sommelier how to approach wine and olive oil.
  • Enjoy a delicious typical Tuscan meal based on fresh truffles.

 Wine Tour destination

The woods around San Miniato yield about 80% of the total production of the prized White Truffle variety. 

Tuscan wine tastings

After your truffle-hunting session, we will transfer to a typical winery to taste their Chianti Classico DOCG, Chianti Classico Riserva, and Super Tuscan red wines.

What to expect from this Truffle & Chianti wine tour.

You will have the chance to watch how a hound detects truffle. After the hunt, we will back to the beautiful Francesca's Villa for a special 3-course lunch with the truffle found. Do not worry Francesca knows her stuff so we will find some prized truffle nuggets. In any case, your efforts will be rewarded with a delicious lunch with truffle-based appetizers and truffle-flavored tagliolini or gnocchi.
