Mandarin Oriental Milan launches a Truffle and Wine tasting tour of Piedmont
Mandarin Oriental, Milan has launched a wine and culinary tour of neighbouring Piedmont, available from 1 October 2017. Guests booking the White Truffle and Fine Wine Experience package will sample local wines during a private guided visit to a UNESCO-designated winery, and enjoy two gourmet meals at Michelin-star restaurants.
Home to Italy’s finest wines, including Barolo and Barbaresco, Piedmont is renowned for its white truffle, a gourmet delicacy traditionally harvested in the wild between mid-September and early November.
Guests are taken to the town of Canelli in Asti province, at the heart of Piedmont’s wine producing region, to visit the underground cellars of the 18th century Coppo Winery, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A tutored wine tasting session with paired local products, and a presentation on white truffles and truffle hunting techniques are included in the tour. Guests receive a complimentary bottle of Riserva Coppo Brut Metodo Classico, the winery’s finest sparkling wine, and a traditional truffle recipe that brings out the full flavours of regional ingredients.
After the winery tour, guests can savour a traditional lunch for two at Michelin-starred San Marco Restaurant, which is set among rolling vineyards on the border between the Langhe and Monferrato wine-growing areas. Also included in the package is a three-course taster dinner menu for two at Mandarin Oriental, Milan’s two Michelin-starred Seta run by award-winning chef, Antonio Guida.
