A Tuscan Truffle Hunt

This Autumn, why not experience a truly unique, bucket-list adenture with a Traditional Truffle Hunt, in the heart of rural Tuscany

hosted by award winning country house hotel www.borgopignano.com

Learn the ancient skills used to unearth these gourmet treasures and savour the enticing aromas and

delicious flavours of fresh truffles. During your truffle hunting adventure, you will be accompanied by a

local truffle hunter and his dog who will guide you around the woodlands and fields of the Borgo

Pignano Estate.

Your truffle-infused gastronomic break also includes a cooking class where you will learn the art of

using truffles within seasonal Tuscan cuisine. During your stay at the Pignano you will also have the chance

to take a behind the scenes farm tour and visit our organic vegetable gardens, spend time with our

bee-keeper and learn how we make our own honey. To complete your gourmet experience, sample

head chef Vincenzo Martella’s Autumnal tasting menu with wines paired by Pignano’s wine

connoisseur Francesco Dell’Aiuto.
