THE ALBA WHITE TRUFFLE WORLD MARKET

The Alba White Truffle World Market is the undisputed protagonist of Alba’s autumn season: it is an exhibition area set in the historic city centre, il Cortile della Maddalena, where you can buy and appreciate in full truffles from the Langhe, Roero and Monferrato woods.

TRUFFLES AND THE QUALITY COMMISSION
The Alba White Truffle World Market features in a single venue, trifolao (truffle hunters) and traders, focusing on quality and on the truffle certification.
It is true: the Tuber magnatum Pico sold in Alba is analyzed and guaranteed.
The consumer is protected thanks to a control Committe which refers to the rules set by the certificate of quality of Tuber magnatum Pico, drawn up in four languages by the National Centre for the Study of Truffles, the most qualified institute for the analysis and enhancement of this valuable product. The truffles, examined by the Centre’s expert guarantors, are then wrapped, at the time of purchase, in numbered bags, which allow to identify the seller who dealt with the product.

ALBAQUALITA’ - THE CULINARY EXCELLENCES OF PIEDMONT
Within the International Alba White Truffle Fair there you can also find the AlbaQualityà exhibition stands, offering an overview of the gastronomic and wine quality of the area thanks to thousands of products to be tasted including wines, spirits, liqueurs, cheeses, ham and salami, fresh and dry pasta, bakery products, traditional cakes, chocolate, vegetables and products made with Piedmont IGP hazelnuts, Cuneo IGP chestnuts, special flours, mushrooms and, obviously, truffles, loads of truffles!

TASTING AREA AND WINERY
