Truffle Hunting

29 July 2013

Umbria is lucky enough to have a wonderful climate for growing truffles. Truffles are not grown on farms but are brought to our plates by truffle-hunters, who, with the help of specially trained dogs, seek truffles during predominantly the colder months, although certain types of truffles (“scorsone”) are also found during the summer.

Truffles are considered Umbrian ¨Black Diamonds¨ and one of its most typical and delicious products, known the world over. We offer you the possibility to join an export in a day excursion in the woods and Umbrian countryside near Scheggino, to then enjoy a lunch of truffle-based dishes and learn about the truffle hunting tradition.
