  • Tuscany, and in particular the countryside enclosed between the medieval villages of San Miniato and Montaione, is the land of origin of the truffle. The harvest of three valuable species of truffle takes place in this area: from January to April the maturation of the Bianchetto truffle takes place (Tuber borchii); from May to September of the black summer truffle (Tuber aestivum) and from September to January of the famous white truffle of the Colline Sanminiatesi (Tuber magnatum). The favorable climatic conditions, the composition of the soil, and the protection of the natural territory make the hills of San Miniato one of the main harvesting sites in the world for the quantity, but above all for the quality of the truffle. It is no coincidence, in fact, in the territory between San Miniato and Montaione, on the hills near the small village of Balconevisi, in 1954 was foud the largest truffle in the world with a weight of 2,520 kg.
    This experience will take place with the expert truffle hunter Leonardo and his sweet Lagotti Romagnoli Aki and Roi, who will guide you along the secret paths in the woods in search of the diamond of our land. There is a whole world around the truffle, partly still unknown even to science, which we will try to discover: how the truffle is born and develops, why it is found in certain areas and in certain periods, why and who are responsible of its aroma.
    Once the truffle hunt is completed, a tasting of truffle-based products will be offered and the various applications of truffles in the kitchen will be explained to you.
