After a story about truffles and truffle hunting tradition in the family, this family serves you three typical Istrian bandies; honey brandy, mistletoe brandy, and cheery brandy. When you open your appetite it’s time for truffle delicacies such as Istrian cheese with truffles (three different types), sausages with truffles, canapes with truffles, truffle honey, truffle oil, scrambled eggs with fresh truffles (which are prepared in front of the guests so they can participate in the preparation).
- The experience is fulfilled by the stunning view on Motovun town and lake Butoniga featured by a tasting of the homemade wines, Malvasia and Teran, from the cellar.
