Wine and truffle tour
In the land of peasants who brunch truffles and sparkling wine
In Central Istria, right above the shores of Lake Butoniga, there is a secluded village whose inhabitants see nothing special in having brunch consisting of truffle omelet and a glass of sparkling wine. This luxurious lifestyle of Istrian peasants is easy to understand once you realize this hilltop village is surrounded by truffle forests and each family produces sparkling wine following traditional method that itself is older than 150 years.
In the morning we will visit a truffle hunting family in Central istria and go for truffle hunt with dogs, enjoy truffle based lunch that consist of three courses (starters, main and dessert). Here you can purchase the truffles and various truffle based delicacies, like tartufatta, truffle spreads, truffle oil, truffle “nutella”… Afternoon is reserved for visit of two wineries, again in Central Istria in vicinity of Motovun. Depending on availability of winemaker, it is possible to include visit of a boutique winery that produces stellar sparkling wines tat are available to taste and purchase only on their doors.
