What to expect

The food tour to discover the Umbrian flavours begins with the truffle hunting! We will welcome you to the farm and you will meet our most faithful truffle hunter. Massimiliano will accompany you with the dogs on this exciting adventure to discover the Umbrian truffle.

The truffle hunting experience will begin in one of our truffle grounds situated near the farm with the dogs, Perla or Luna. We will explain how the flavours of Umbrian truffle vary according to the temperatures, place and seasonal period.

The food and wine tour will then continue with a walk in the nature up to the village of San Giovanni. The village is a jewel carved in the pink stone of Mount Subasio. It is a small fortified centre of early medieval origin, located at an altitude of about 630 metres above sea level.

A delicious indoor or outdoor lunch will await you in the village, depending on the weather. You will get lost in the notes of our Umbrian flavours. You will enjoy an appetiser and a first course with truffle, according to seasonal availability.

After a tour in the village of San Giovanni, you can choose to continue the adventure. When booking, add the biodynamic wine tasting in one of the most popular restaurants in Umbria.
