The truffles hunting in the Langhe, a magical world to discover!

The white truffle season in the Langhe is something magical and with Slowdays you can live the unique and unforgettable experience of searching for truffles together with a real “trifolao” and his dog.

Learn all about the world of truffles, the different types and characteristics and above all observe the behavior of the dog in search of the precious treasure hidden underground!

The experience ends with a tasting lunch in a wine cellar with wine pairing included. It will be possible to buy truffles from Trifolao to taste during the lunch (or take home!)

Where: Langhe
Duration: The search lasts about an hour and a half and is exclusive or at most with a few other people (rarely)
Participants: Min. 2 people
Period: annual (depending on the season, different types of truffles will be searched)

5 star rating Wonderful day of wine tasting! A big thank you to Claudia for arranging a wine tour for us. Fabio was our guide, and he picked us up at our bed and breakfast. He took us to two wineries, one in Barolo and one in Barbaresco. Fabio was delightful and we had a great day with him. He took pictures of us throughout the day and sent them by text, which only added to great memories. The wineries were both family run where we met the owners and could feel their love of what they do. We now have a lot of wine to ship home, but that’s a good problem! Claudia arranged a lunch for us in Barolo at a restaurant where the food was local and fresh, and delicious! She also made sure that we would have time to wander through Barolo, which was the perfect town to spend an afternoon in.
Making arrangements through Claudia was very easy, and made for a great vacation. She also arranged a fabulous day for us with a truffle hunter, but that will be in another review. I highly recommend Slowdays for touring in the Piedmont area! - 30/10/2019

5 star rating Week in heaven made possible by Claudia We just came back to Iceland after a wonderful week in Piedmont. The group consisted of 5 couples. I had researched tour organizers in the area and soon I discovered Slowdays! I contacted Claudia in the spring and the dialogue started and Claudia spent a lot of time and effort trying to understand our needs and expectations. I have to say the trip was perfect for everyone in the group. Claudia was spot on in every aspect, (even the bus was great). The hotels were wonderful, small personal boutique hotels with great views of the vineyards. The restaurants fantastic ranging from local restaurants to the best in Piedmont. We highly recommend the truffle hunt and the truffle fair! Highly recommend the cheese whisperer and the visit to the local farmer. We did bike tours on e-bikes and I have to say it was a good choice to select the e-bikes. You can see so much more by covering more distances and the guide Riccardo was excellent. We also did wine tasting :). And I would recommend smaller wineries, the bigger ones tend to be more commercial. We met Claudia and her mother at the truffle hunt a very likeable person and she is really good at understanding the customers needs and mixing together different activities. For us the trip was like a symphony that started slowly and modestly but during its lifespan it grew stronger, faster, bolder and ended in a big climax in the end 🙂 (for us it was the dinner at La Ciau del Tornavento, beautiful house and wine cellar, great food, in our opinion the best restaurant in the trip). Thank you so much Clauda and hopefully we'll see you soon! - 16/10/2019

5 star rating fuori dal mondo sono i luoghi visitati, di una bellezza commovente, lo sono le cose buone che abbiamo degustato, la lezione di integrazione tra uomo e natura in occasione della ricerca del tartufo e delle visite in vigna, sembrano di un altro mondo la gentilezza e la competenza quasi amorevole di tutte le persone con le quali abbiamo avuto un rapporto. In particolare la gentilissima Sig.ra Claudia di Slowdays che ci ha pazientemente aiutato nella progettazione di questo minitour delle Langhe. Affidatele serenamente il vostro tempo perchè saprà renderlo prezioso. Grazie - 16/10/2019
