Truffle orgy in Italy

Alba

If you are wild about white truffles and pasta makes your head spin, think not more when it comes to destination of your next love weekend …

Calvi on the Rocks, the food version, it’s the Alba Truffle Festival until the 15th of  November. An orgy of very good taste organized in this Piedmont village where all the handsome trendy Italians show up with their buddies to settle down in trattorias, knock back bottles of Barrolo (the amazing cult wine from Piedmont, that is ideal with truffle of course) and go home with tartufo treasures in the you luggage.

So be sure to stop by the truffle market where all the local producers are gathered. Nothing better to buy truffles without being ripped up and outstanding truffle products (every Saturday and Sunday from 8am to 8pm)

We adooore: organizing a truffle hunt with dogs, tasting amazing wines and sitting down for great meals at super tables such as Caffe Umberto.

How to get there? A small plane for Turin (1h30). Then you rent a car and have one only 1h until Alba.

Where do you sleep? Reserve a charming place such as Il vigneto di roddi.

All the information here.

 

Cheaper option : pasta with truffles to do at home to bluff our lover.
