Truffle hunting and Barolo tasting

Go hunting truffles in the Langhe woods and savour the creations of the wineries of Barolo.

Hunting truffles in the Langhe woods
Category Icon

Gorgeous little mediaeval towns, gentle rolling hills, and rows and rows of vines. The Langhe, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, boasts some of the finest country that southern Piedmont has to offer. This land of artisanal producers offers sublime wines and local delicacies of incomparable flavour and aroma. In autumn, the landscape clothes itself in a hundred hues, as the trifulau – the truffle hunters – gather their treasures from the woodland earth.

Stay at the Baglioni Hotel Carlton in the heart of Milan, and set off to discover the Langhe and sample the supreme local food and wine for an exquisitely Italian experience. You’ll take part in a private woodland excursion with a local truffle hunter and their trusty canine companion on an exciting quest for prized black truffles (found all year round) or the white Alba variety (September to December). Soon after, you’ll taste the truffles at an elegant lunch in a nearby restaurant. Your tour continues in a renowned Barolo winery, where you’ll enjoy a tasting of the maker’s prestigious wines.

Discover the Langhe and treat yourself to a delightful experience for all the senses.
