Holidays

One of the most appreciated experiences by tourists during their stay in Langhe is the truffle search.

This activity is characterized by an almost symbiotic relationship between the seeker (trifolau) and his dog (tabui), which is decisive for finding the precious hypogeal fungus (trifula).

The interaction between the trifolau and the dog takes place with commands in the Piedmontese language.

The simulated research

The discovery of truffles is guaranteed since it’s a simulated research, though finding spontaneously matured truffles is not excluded.

Places of research: natural truffle field of Roddi (district Ravinali), Canale, La Morra (district Annunziata).

Products

The chance to buy safely the truffles of every season and variety

There are the classic Alba White Truffle, the precious black truffle and the black summer truffle or Scorzone.

Depending on the season there are also the Bianchetto truffle or Marzolino and the Moscato black truffle.

The truffles found during the research are owned by the trifulao, but can be bought at the end of the research, following the weighing and the seasonal value.

The products purchased are shipped all over the world by courier, directly at home or at another address indicated on the order.

What is the Truffle?

The truffle is a mushroom that looks like a tuber, provided with an external rind and an internal pulp furrowed by veins. It lives in symbiosis with other organisms, of plants such as oak, hazel, poplar and linden and reproduces through the production of spores.

The trifolau and Kelly

You can live this experience with the guidance of Massimiliano Bertello and his faithful Kelly.

You will be driven, in your own vehicle or his up to four people, between the UNESCO hills of the Langhe and Roero, in one of the four natural truffle lands.

Strengthened by the experience handed down from father to son, Massimiliano tells stories about the trifolao and the dog training, plus some curiosities and legends.

Everything revolves around the truffle: harvesting, cleaning, preservation and food pairings.

It’s an experience that needs to be lived with education, without disturbing the balance of the forest.

The trifulau can take the liberty of uniting more groups for the convenience of its schedules, and it is indeed possible that you’ll be accompanied by other curious people.
