Truffles and Wine: Piedmont During the Harvest

Beyond the natural and historic jewels of Italy’s northwest, which of course we visit, “Truffles and Wine: Piedmont during the Harvest” features up-close-and-personal encounters with several Slow Food Presidia, agriturismi, a truffle-hunting demonstration with a local expert and his beloved dog, three wine tastings, and a visit to the famous Alba truffle fair.
