Truffle School

Award from Italian Government "Ministry of Agricolture" for our wonderful TRUFFLE SCHOOL.

"Truffle hunting is a passion that was transmitted to me by my father and for me it still means keeping alive my history and the tradition of my family."

Matteo Bartolini

This is the most exciting of experiences for truffle fans. White winter truffle, black winter truffle, white spring truffle, summer black truffle: these are all the truffles that we can find in our area.

The hunt is preceded by a meeting with Matteo (truffle class) who will provide all the essential information to understand how, where and why truffles grow.

Then we start the hunt in the woods with Sole our dog. What would the truffle hunters do without their amazing dogs? This is an experience that allows you to get in touch with nature and with the life of the woods. But even more, to witness the special feeling that exists between truffle hunter and his dog.

After truffle hunting we reveal the secrets and the magical ways to wash, to preserve and to create typical dishes with truffles and at the end, we eat the truffles found back at the agriturismo.
