Our story

An italian family

Truffle runs deep in our family. Our story began in 1911 when we opened a cozy store nestled in the heart of Umbria, Italy. It's here that the adventure of Sabatino Balestra and Giuseppina began, leading them into a destiny interwoven with truffles. As our lands revealed the treasures hidden beneath the soil, our passion ignited. We embarked on a quest, unearthing truffles and crafting high-quality truffle products for everyone to savor.
