Hello, my name is Alfonso, born in 1960 in Oltrepò, a beautiful part of the Pavia province.
The passion for nature, and mushrooms in particular, has accompanied me for several years. I find inner peace in the woods, walking through long gullies or in valleys, with my dog, in search of truffles. Each time, when I look around, depending on the season and climate, I can see a different landscape and "smell" different scents, although I am in the same places! That's fantastic!
This world, however, demands respect. Natural truffle areas, in particular, need years of the perfect mix (water, sun, temperature, pH of the soil, etc.) to produce truffles. But just a year of outrageous and disrespectful collection can destroy it all. What I can offer is a real truffle hunt, black and/or white depending on the season. It is a unique and special experience that takes place in the beautiful hills of Oltrepò.
I was forgetting to tell you that after or during the trip, if we want to have a chat and maybe a 'snack', we can easily find fresh bread, tasty sausage and/or cheese, great wine and... water; everything is served with a smile!
