Visit Tuscany this autumn and take part in a traditional truffle hunt in the heart of the Tuscan countryside. Learn the ancient skills used to unearth these gourmet treasures and savour the enticing aromas and delicious flavours of fresh truffles.
During your truffle hunting adventure, you will be accompanied by a local truffle hunter and his dog who will guide you around the woodlands and fields of the Borgo Pignano Estate.
Your truffle-infused gastronomic break also includes a cooking class where you will learn the art of using truffles within seasonal Tuscan cuisine. During your stay at the Pignano you will also have the chance to take a behind the scenes farm tour and visit our organic vegetable gardens, spend time with our bee-keeper and learn how we make our own honey. To complete your gourmet experience, sample head chef Vincenzo Martella’s Autumnal tasting menu with wines paired by Pignano’s wine connoisseur Francesco Dell’Aiuto.
The truffle hunting offer includes elegant accommodation within Pignano’s beautiful 18th Century villa overlooking the medieval town of Volterra.
