Description

Experience the gastronomical pleasure of Barolo and Piedmontese truffles in this luxurious weekend getaway in Italy. When a food and wine which originate from the same region are served side by side, their mutual terroir is elevated to a new level of sensorial delight. The wines of Barolo present a powerful, rustic palate of cherry and spices and the intense flavour profiles of the wine perfectly complement the earthy and powerful flavours of the truffles. White truffles, also known as Alba truffles, are generally found in the Alba, Langhe and Monferrato regions of Piedmont. The famous white truffle is one of the world's most prized delicacies and Barolo is the the classic wine accompaniment, highlighting its earthy quality.

Coordinated by Lusso e Gusto, who specialise in culinary travel and curate foodie vacations in breathtaking places around Italy, guests get to experience a truly spectacular gourmet break. The French-born restauranteur Marie Giordano and her husband offer a unique opportunity to indulge in exquisite Italian culinary culture and lifestyle and celebrate the unhurried life – starting at the table.

Guests are met at Milan Malpensa Airport and enjoy a private transfer to the luxurious boutique Arborina Relais which overlooks the scenic vineyards of Barolo. The hotel is located on a UNESCO World Heritage site and is perfectly integrated into the beautiful landscape with its simple lines, large windows, soft lighting and natural materials of wood and stone. Revel in a two night stay at this unique hotel, make the most of the top class spa and soak in the views of the Barolo hills. Savour traditional Piedmontese food in a sumptuous four course dinner and wine pairing overlooking the picturesque rolling vineyards. Head out into the woods and embark on a truffle hunt with an experienced truffle hunter and his trained dogs and scour to find the rare Italian truffle. Following all the excitement of the hunt, savour a truffle tasting paired with local delicacies and wines.

The experience also includes a private transfer to Alba, the capital of Langhe and home to the white truffle, as well as wine tasting at a historical winery. Sample the intense flavours of Barolo, Barbera and Barbaresco crus before indulging in a fine dining truffle dinner with wine pairing in Bra. Savour the intense flavours of the local dishes in this incredible taste sensation. The experience concludes with a visit to the Banco del Vino (wine bank) where more than 100,000 bottles from 300 of the best Italian wine producers are stored and a tasting of some of Piedmont's best vintages.

This is truly remarkable experience celebrating the great wines of Piedmont and the luxurious and culinary delights of the rare truffle. Enjoy an unforgettable gourmet getaway and discover the holy grail for foodies.
