Title should be “Wine tasting with a bit of truffels hunting.”

Not what we thought we had booked. Main scope was wine tasting and selling (should only be optional as per the tour description) instead of truffles hunting. Ok, Silvano greatly explained his business, but the truffles hunting was less than 1.5 hrs. The tasting of delicacies did not happen at all … as long as they did not sell us the wine as the local delicacy … All in all rather disappointing than exciting, and in this case way too expensive. We would not recommend to book this tour if you expect to get what is included in the description.

hello susanne thanks for your review. We are sorry if we have not meet your expectations. However the wine tasting with snack was absolutely present as stated in the desciption ! Regarding the price you had a private English speaking guide, a winemaker and and the truffle hunter at your disposal. I am pretty sure you won't find anything similar for this price in the market. However thanks for your suggestios, it will help us to improve our service and experience !

We had a great time with Elio and his dogs finding truffles in the forest, really wonderful experience and we learned a lot! Wine testing was excellent, however a bit too long introduction with Silvano in the winery which was under big renovation. The tour took more than 4 hours instead of the 3 hours planned

Spannende Trüffelsuche mit anschliesener Verkostung von Spezialitäten

Freundlich und interessant. Leider war der Hund schon etwas Müde von der nächtlichen Trüffelsuche. Hat aber trotzdem noch zwei Trüffel gefunden. Dolmetscherin war perfekt. Die Besichtigung des Weingutes war sehr interessant und perfekt geführt. Silvano Bolmida war ein sehr herzlicher Gastgeber und wir konnten viele verschiedene Weine probieren. Absolut empfehlenswert!
