Truffles

Truffles are wild fungus that grow sporadically in forests or plantations and they need the roots of a tree to create a micro-symbiosis to grow, usually these trees are holm oaks or hazels.

Truffles are completely underground and it is almost impossible to detect them without the help of a trained dog. They are gathered by farmers with the help of a trained dog that detects the fragrance that the truffle gives off.

 


Our Business

We are a family business that during three generations we are specialized in trading with truffles.
Our main task is to buy the best truffles directly from the farmers in the several producing areas and after that we do a selection and we supply them in fresh, preserved or frozen formats.


Fresh Truffles

The main varieties of truffles that we supply are:

- Perigord Black truffle (Tuber Melanosporum)
- The Brumale Truffle or "musqueé" (Tuber Brumale)
- Black Summer Truffle (Tuber Aestivium, Uncinatum)
- Chinese Truffle (Tuber Indicum)

All the truffles come from the best truffle areas where there is a daily harvest. After the selection we brush them and we prepare them to send to all the destinations in the shortest possible time.
Our experience allows us to guarantee that our truffles are fresh and natural.
