This full-day culinary expedition will introduce you to the wonderful world of truffles and give you a taste of one of Italy's best biodynamic wines. No gourmet morsel is as exotic and luxurious as the white truffle - il tartufo bianco. These delicacies, which can cost thousands of dollars per pound, grow only in the wild and can only be found by expert foragers aided by their highly trained dogs.
Starting from and returning to your hotel in Florence, this tour will take you to the lovely hill town of San Miniato not far from Pisa, renowned as the capital of the Tuscan white truffle. Four generations of the Savini family have hunted truffles in this area. One of their expert trifulau will explain the local truffle varieties and food traditions. Then, armed with this knowledge, you'll head out with your guide and his dogs on your very own truffle hunt.
A lunch including truffles and other local delicacies will follow. After lunch you will continue on to the Tenuta di Poggio estate where you'll visit the cellars and learn how grapes become wine; a guided tasting of their biodynamic wines follows.
