A fun and beautiful day in Tuscany
Elisa_R, Dec 2022
The truffle hunting was an experience to remember for a lifetime. We had so much fun with the dogs, learning how they are trained, how truffles grow and the differences among the different types. We helped once the dogs told us where to dig.
The lunch and wine tasting after was a true dining experience. We enjoyed both the food and wine. Giving us a wide selection of different wines to try from Tuscany. They were also flexible accommodating allergies and vegetarian diets. A fun day from which we will take home many fond memories.
Truffle hunting, lunch and wine experience!

Amazing experience truffle hunting. Our hosts were gracious and fun to be with. The Lagotto Romagnala dogs are amazing and sweet. We really enjoyed the wine tasting and lunch as well!

A lot of info on truffles before the actual truffle hunting. A little long for my liking. The dogs are cute but the actual hunting is short. This is definitely geared for tourists. Food & wine were great & you better love truffle on your food. It was yummy!
Moreno was amazing....

Moreno was amazing. Incredible local experience. The truffle hunting was very authentic, followed by one of the best vertical wine tastings with Leonardo and his family. Truly memorable.

We had the best day with Moreno and the rest of the family! The property is lovely, the truffle hunting experience with the dogs was unforgettable, and we enjoyed an amazing lunch + wine tasting afterwards which was the perfect ending to the day. All of the staff was friendly and knowledgable and we'd gladly return next time we're in Tuscany. Thank you all for such a lovely experience!

Ten out of ten. We only had two people but three more decided to join when the saw the venue. The truffle hunter Murano is a treasure. The food and wine were excellent. I will go back every year
3 hours of perfection

This was an unexpected highlight on a trip filled with highlights. The vineyard grounds were spectacular, the truffle hunt with Moreno and his dogs was so fun, and we were blown away by the wine tasting and lunch. The wines were delicious, the service impeccable, and the experience absolutely top shelf.
Fantastic fun truffle hunting
CATHY_D, Mar 2022
We had such fun on the truffle hunting experience Moreno is the passionate hunter who taught us about the cultivation of truffles, the different varieties and their seasons, the white truffles found only in the wild, and how the dogs are trained. Enrico translated. He and Moreno had a great pace at keeping the conversation flowing and answering our many questions. Then we went out into the oak grove with three of the dogs. They soon found truffles. Moreno let each of us dig up a truffle once it was found by the dogs. We had two big handfuls in less than 30 minutes. It was a wonderful experience.
Then we headed inside for wine tasting and a delicious lunch!
Highlight of our trip

This was absolutely the highlight of our trip to Italy. The environment is beautiful and the truffel hunting experience with Moreno is something we’ll never forget. Everyone was incredibly nice too. Highly recommand it!
Excellent day at the vineyard!

I was traveling solo and the whole family and staff were very friendly and accommodating. The truffle tour was fantastic with the cute pups and our hunter, Moreno, with 30+ years of experience at the vineyard. An amazing 4 course lunch followed with lots of wine tasting!
Great Experience in the heart of Tuscany
