This Tour is a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience the Italian truffle world.
We will pick you up at your hotel and drive up into the hills of Bologna to Savigno, a small village famous for white and black truffles. We will welcome you to Appennino Food, a local Truffle Factory, which holds the record for the largest Truffle (tuber magnatum pico) weighing 1,483.596 grams (52.3323 oz). After an introduction into the Italian truffle world, you will be able to tour the factory to see how they process truffles and transform them into delicious products, such as ragu sauces along with vegetables and mushrooms. Afterward we will have a one-hour truffle hunt near the factory with our licensed truffle hunter and his dog, Macchia. You will see the special relationship between the truffle hunter and his dog and you will learn about the unique symbiosis of truffles and trees.
After the hunt we will have some wine tasting and truffle dinner.
