Meet our licensed guides at our Farmhouse at 08:45 AM and go to the nearest truffle area. With the help of our 4-legged friends, magnificently trained, and the experience of Mirco and Luca, our trusty truffle hunters, immerse yourself 360 degrees in this unique and exciting experience.
The research area was specially selected for the particularity of the truffle plants, for its accessibility and for the breathtaking beauty of the landscapes.In the spring we will walk near the archaeological excavations of Castel San Gimignano while in winter the tour will be carried out between Poggibonsi and San Gimignano.
Then, return to the farmhouse and enjoy a truffle-based cooking class with a tasting of 4/5 organic & biodynamic wines and 6 extra virgin olive oils just after visiting our Vernaccia vineyard, one of the oldest in the town of San Gimignano.
During the class, you will learn the secrets of truffles, how to clean them, and different ways to pair them. Then, we will start with the preparation of antipasti, a delicious Bruschetta with Lardo di Colonnata ( a typical Tuscan cold cut) or Tuscan Bacon and slices of fresh truffle on top, a first traditional dish composed by the preparation of Tuscan Pasta “Pici or tagliatelle,” a second course that will include the preparation of meat with truffle slices and a side dish. Finally, we will prepare a tasty dessert.
Attention, the truffle hunting area is around 20 minutes driving from the meeting point. Guests should arrange the transfer by themselves. We also advise you to wear trekking shoes and comfortable clothes.
