What You Can Expect

Small-Group Truffle Hunting and Wine Experience from Florence with Lunch

Hunt for truffles in Tuscany

Your tour will begin in central Florence, where you’ll join up with your guide and travel out of the city by coach.   

Venture westward to the Tuscan town of San Miniato, renowned for the white truffle found in its surrounding woodlands. This impressive town not only supplies the most precious and aromatic truffles, but is also said to provide close to 80 percent of the world's most desired gourmet products.

Upon entering the forest, meet your truffle hunter and his companion, a canine equipped with specialized training to seek out the truffles. Follow the pair through the woods on a leisurely walk as the dog scans under the forest floor. You’ll know when you’ve struck gold: watch as the dog begins to dig until the delicacy is unearthed.

Afterward, reunite with your driver and relax with a 2-course lunch at a local truffle shop. Treat your taste buds to a truffle-based appetizer, before savoring a fresh truffle pasta accompanied by local wine.

With appetites sated, continue to a winery in the world-famous region of Chianti. Join your winemaker host and learn about the process behind the flavorful blends that you sample, including Super Tuscan and the estate’s Chianti DOCG.

Your tour will conclude with a smooth ride back to Florence.

This was the perfect excursion from Florence! In our small group of 6 (3 sets of couples who didn't know each other before the day began) we melded well and had fun exploring the Tuscan countryside, wine and food together. Hillary, our guide was exceptional and was a font of Italian history and knowledge.

The entire experience was wonderful. From the start of the tour, the drive to the farm, the friendly farmer, his super dogs, his way of explaining all aspects of truffle hunting...followed by an amazing lunch...all was superb.It was followed by wine tasting and learning the nuances of wine making...also par excellence.
All in all, we had a wonderful day......a memory for a lifetime

What a great tour! It was wonderful to explore the countryside, a more remote cathedral and to spend one at a beautiful Tuscan villa. The vineyard we visited was great and we are excited to receive the package of wine that they are shipping for us. I highly recommend this tour!
