Truffling in Spello
Enjoy the thrill of the hunt: go truffle hunting in Umbria !Irene Menichini
Irene, the truffle expert, will guide you to discover this precious fruit of the earth, which knows how to delight the most curious foodies. She will welcome you to the farm and introduce you to our best truffle hunter, Massimiliano, who will guide you on this exciting adventure.
The truffle hunting experience will begin in one of our truffle grounds situated near the farm, together with the truffle dog, Perla or Luna. Depending on the season, you will find the different types of truffles with our dogs. We will explain how the flavours of our land vary according to the temperature, the place and the season.
Village San Giovanni
The food experience will continue with a walk in nature until the village of San Giovanni, a jewel carved in the “pink stone” of Mount Subasio. The village is located at an altitude of about 630 metres above sea level along the road from Spello to Assisi via Collepino.
It is a small fortified centre built during the early Middle Ages and now devoid of the city walls that once surrounded it, of which some parts remain only on the eastern side.
In the village, a delicious lunch will await you (inside or outside, depending on the weather) to make you enjoy our Umbrian flavours. You will taste an appetizer with truffle and a first course with truffle, according to seasonal availability.
Visiting Spello and Tasting Biodynamic wines
After a tour in the village of San Giovanni, where some of the local stories and legends will be revealed, you can choose whether to continue the adventure by adding while booking the visiting of a storic village as Nocera Umbra and tasting of biodynamic wines, in one of the most popular restaurants in Umbria, or return to the farm.
