In the evening, a delicious four course welcome dinner will be served in the hotel’s Michelin starred restaurant, accompanied by three glasses of wine.
 
Day 2: After a relaxing start to your trip, you will certainly be ready for the truffle hunt. After breakfast you will be met by an English speaking driver/guide, and accompanied throughout the day on a private basis. You will firstly be taken to meet a local truffle hunter, located near to Asti, who will share with you everything there is to know about this gourmet delicacy. You’ll discover why truffles are so renowned, the local traditions of the hunters, the best environment for growing truffles, and will also learn about the characteristics of the different truffle varieties.
You will then be welcomed (subject to weather) to accompany the ‘trifulao’ or truffle hunter and his dog on a typical trail which they often follow, hopefully locating some truffles en-route! The visit will conclude with a truffle tasting; a fresh truffle will be shaved onto local cheese, perfectly paired with some salami and wine.
Following your morning’s activity, you will be taken to the nearby city of Asti, which has a medieval feel to it. Together with your guide, you will have a tour of the city on foot, before there will be some free time for lunch.
After lunch, the day will conclude with a visit of a Barbera d’Asti wine estate; as well as having a full tour of the estate and cellars, learning about the wine-production process from press to bottle, you will also have the opportunity to taste a selection of the estate’s wines. You will be dropped back at your hotel at the end of the day, in time to relax and enjoy the evening.  
 
Day 3: Today you will have the opportunity to get even more hands on with truffles, in a speciality cookery class. Guided by a professional chef, with your own workstation, you will discover some of the very best recipes to make the truffle shine as a key ingredient. You will be preparing a three course menu based around the truffle and at the end of the class will dine together, enjoying the fruits of your labour at lunch.
After lunch, you will have the opportunity to visit the on-site White Truffle Museum.
A private transfer will drop you back at the hotel in the afternoon, and the remainder of the day and evening will be free to relax and enjoy your pleasant surroundings.
 
Day 4: After breakfast and checking out of the hotel, commence your return journey.
 
Please note: The truffle hunt activity is weather-dependent, and the truffles hunted and used during cookery vary dependent on season.
Please note: If you wish, you can only stay for a 3-day break, which does not include Day 3 in the itinerary. These prices are realistic guide prices, based on travel in standard season (usually April to the end of October). Discounts often apply for travel during out of season (usually November to the end of March) or if there are more than two of you traveling together.
