If you really want to explore Monferrato, your first stop has to be a wine tasting at a local winery, where compromising on quality is unheard of.
The most excellent experience to beat all experiences: Monferrato’s cuisine is exquisitely mouthwatering, featuring unique dishes that change with the seasons, because they are always made with the traditional ingredients that the land provides. That’s why IdeaMonferrato’s advice is to not leave your choice of dining experience to chance.
Monferrato’s earth is home to the best variety of white truffle in the world and here you can not only try truffles in traditional local recipes, but you can also have the unique experience of hunting for truffles at night with dogs. Learning about truffles is an art, and we’re here to show you how.
