Oprah Winfrey checks off another item on her bucket list: Truffle hunting in Italy!
Many of you are familiar with one of our Featured Sponsor partners, Skin&Co Roma. An exceptional brand that offers an extremely unique and luxurious line of anti-aging, skincare and body care products for all skin types, by incorporating the benefits of using one of the most expensive extracts in the world – truffles.
Well we would also like to introduce you to another division of the family business – Sabatino Tartufi Truffles.
Just after the turn of the century in 1911, Sabatino Tartufi was founded. Sabatino Balestra and his wife Giuseppa began in a small storefront in Montecastrilli, Umbria, catering to local families by distributing truffles, olives, olive oil and sardines.
During this period, in this part of Umbria , the heart of central Italy , people cultivated wheat and corn and their main food was bread and soup made with various pulses, not truffles. However, Sabatino & Giuseppa, certain of the extraordinary qualities of their products and driven by the belief that there was and would continue to be a growing consumer market for high-quality and fresh-tasting products, continued in their efforts to create a company that could share with the rest of the world the value and exquisiteness of the truffle. Their vision and philosophy to always maintain the highest quality standards and to provide the freshest products has been passed on to three generations and today is embodied to its fullest in the Sabatino Tartufi legacy as it exists today.
Just shy of 100 years in the traditional family trade of producing and commercializing truffles, the present day Sabatino Tartufi, owned and managed by the third generation after Sabatino & Giuseppa, have continued to build the company’s solid reputation as the leading authority in the Truffle business. Now a large agricultural company with vast black and white truffle grounds, modern production laboratories and widespread distribution, the present day Sabatino Tartufi brings freshly picked and produced products to your table in 24 hours.
Today, over a century later, Sabatino Tartufi is the premier source for truffle products and is the leading brand of truffle products in the United States.
Even Oprah Winfrey recently checked off another thing on her bucket list: Truffle hunting in Italy! And Sabatino Truffles helped fulfill her dream. Oprah and close friend Gayle King went on the trip of a lifetime. The famous friends have traveled through Italy for a few days this October, hitting a winery and picking truffles in the region of Umbria while meeting the locals.
