Come visit a stunningly beautiful beautique, organic winery in the hills of Valpolicella. I will meet you and get things started with a fresh glass of sparkling rosè as an aperitivo. I will get you acquainted with the famous wine-making region, as well as the winery itself, before introducing you to our truffle hunter, Michele, who will lead us with his dog into the forests above in search of truffles. We'll spend an hour in the woods learning about truffles and how to find them, and with any luck, we will unearth a few as well. Return back down to the winery to cap off the experience with a wonderful 5 course truffle-based meal, accompanied by the locally produced organic wines.

We will start the experience at a beautiful country farmhouse from the 1800's overlooking looking over the Mezzane Valley. The estate itself is a licensed organic winery, which produced high quality Valpolicella wines. We will then head higher up the hill into forest, fed by natural springs which were known even in Roman Times for the green and fertility of the land. Lunch will be enjoyed by crackling fire in the old dining room of the farmhouse.
