An amazing daytrip in the countryside to enjoy the gems of Chianti area production: truffle, wine and extra virgin olive oil, all in and around the same traditional family farm. Follow the expert truffle man and his trained dog in the forest to witness with your eyes how it is possible to find underground these edible treasures and the strong bond between trees and truffles. Back in the farm, you will have a wonderful lunch based on the truffle you found in the woods. Extra virgin olive oil and traditional Chianti Classico wine will accompany your lunch with a guide that will explain all the procedure of oil and wine production, showing all the phases of the work. Spend a day in a hidden place in the Tuscan country away from the city, with both the emotion of the hunting and the relax of the home-made lunch you will enjoy surrounded by the sounds of nature. For sure a memory will last forever.
