My name is Oscar and I organize truffle hunting tour. I started to practice this hobby when I 15 was years old, from more than 35 years I train my own dogs with which I hunt truffles. My main business is the family winery. My family started to grow vines since 1954 and generation by generation we carry on the values of the Piedmontese tradition

We had a wonderful afternoon with Oscar, Eduardo and their dog Tris. This was a really unique and fun experience. We loved learning about the different varieties of truffles and watching Tris hunt for them. The wine and cheese / salami tasting at the family vineyard was excellent too and we loved all the wines we tried. 5*

Oscar and Eduardo were really knowledgable and gave a very interesting Truffel tour with a wine tasting afterwards (they have an own muscato vineyard, good quality). It was a relaxed and fun afternoon.

We had a great time with Oscar and his son. It was a unique experience to see how their dog Tris was eager to discover some truffels. The wine tasting was also very informativ and refreshing. We will come back again.

Oscar and his son Eduardo were very entertaining and full of great new information. I have never done anything like this before and will tell everybody about it. It was very entertaining as well as educational. It was wonderful to end up at their own winery and taste some of their own wines. They did not try to sell anything to us, but we ended up buying some of their very Excellent wine and wish we had room to take a lot more home. It was inexpensive and delicious. The experience was awesome! I would suggest it for anybody who is interested in food, culture, adventure and just wants to have a great time!

This experience exceeded our expectations. We learned so much about the various types of truffles and special characteristics of each. The tasting at the end was a lovely way to end our afternoon in the countryside. The wines were nice and tasting the truffle on the cheese was delicious. I highly recommend Oscar and his son Eduardo!
