Chianti and truffle tour

 

Truffle & Chianti small-group tour in a nutshell

Tuscany is known not only for its outstanding red wines, but also for top-quality truffles. This tour provides an exclusive opportunity to go hunting for this flavoursome tuber in the footsteps of professional truffle hunters and their specially trained dogs of the super cute, highly skilled Lagotto breed.

 

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.

 

Recommended for...

Gourmets, dog lovers, open-air enthusiasts and anyone looking for a truly memorable, once-in-a-lifetime experience will love this exclusive tour.
