Your guide

Antonio will guide you through this exciting experience, sharing with you his passion as a truffle hunter!
His has an interesting past, from entrepreneur in the cement sector to truffle hunter!
Lombard by origin, he decided to settle in the Vallesina hills to cultivate his passion for truffles.
Today, he not only searches for truffles, but also produces mycorrhized plants for the creation of new “tartufaia” (truffle woods) and trains search dogs!

THE EXPERIENCE

Every season has its truffle! Autumn and winter offer the most famous: the prized black and above all the white, which is rare and cannot be cultivated, but even in spring and throughout the summer, nature continues to offer these tubers, first the ‘bianchetto’ and then the summer black.

At Antonio’s house you are always greeted by his welcoming smile and the greeting of his dogs, always ready to go truffle hunting!
The morning begins with coffee and a description of the farm.
Immediately afterwards, Antonio, in the company of one of his dogs, will take you on a walk through the farm’s truffle fields and the woods that surround the house!

The experience continues...

It is during the walk that you will turn into a truffle hunter for a day.
You will follow the dog, which, depending on its breed, character, age and experience, will behave in its own way!
But we won’t reveal anything; it is worth being surprised.
During the hike, you will reach a meadow with a unique view of the valley and the San Vicino mountain.
The hunt will bear fruit and on the way home, it is time to reward yourself!
Having collected some eggs from the henhouse everything is ready for a truffle tasting snack at Antonio’s house accompanied by a good glass of Verdicchio!
