There’s nothing quite like the serenity of a crisp winter morning following the experienced truffle dogs in their quest to find the black winter truffle. Their excitement for the hunt and their reward when they find a truffle odour is a unique sight. Your guide will explain everything you want to know about truffles, the farm and how they started.
Truffles can be mysterious and aloof, hiding snugly. So when the truffle dogs indicate there is a truffle from the odour they are trained to detect, they will venture to the location and, like archaeologists, they gently dig into the ground, tracking the aroma in the soil until they find their black diamond. The illustrious black winter truffle!
The excitement builds as they unearth the ground around it in the hope of finding a black truffle. The aroma is both unique and delightful and, as you gently remove the gem from the earth, the feeling of success is overwhelming.
