The real protagonist of the excursion is the dog, nicknamed Tabui in jargon, which sets the group’s pace, moving through the trees and sniffing at the base of the trunks.
After walking through the woods, often moving “back and forth”, the tabui is suddenly stricken by the scent at a precise point and starts to turn the earth over lightly to attract the trifualu’s attention.
The trifulau then comes along with his ‘sapin’ (small hoe) and delicately opens the hole where the dog began digging, he then pulls out the truffle with his hands causing an explosion of fragrance.
Departure to Monforte, a small medieval village in the Langa del Barolo, which has recently become one of the most beautiful villages in Italy.

The tour is an immersion in the culture of wine: the suggestion of delving into its myths corresponds to the physical descent from the panoramic terrace to the cellars of the castle, home to the Regional Barolo wine shop.
After the visit you will go to Marchesi di Barolo, historical cellars located in the building overlooking the castle of Marquis Falletti.
The cellars were built at the beginning of the 19th century for a very specific purpose: to make wine from Nebbiolo, protected from the early autumn cold. In this way the Marchesi di Barolo created a stable wine, with a great structure, suitable for ageing. The wine that bears the name of our town and expresses its extraordinary richness: Barolo.
Five historic casks of the time – the “Botti della Marchesa” – are still used today, after painstaking restoration, for the maturation and refinement of precious wines. A heritage of humanity and the history of taste preserved under the hills of the “Langa del Barolo”, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The cellars are also home to a private collection of over 30,000 bottles of Barolo, ranging from rare 19th-century vintages to more recent ones, preserved in the very place where they were born.
Guided tour of the beautiful cellar (45 minutes) and after that, lunch in “La Foresteria” above the cellars.
Wonderful landscapes sculpted by the combined action of nature and man, gentle hilly expanses dotted with vines as far as the eye can see, ancient villages surrounded by fields and imposing castles perched on hilltops
