      We are planning to spend the weekend. Last time I was there, we drove just a little out of town to a vineyard, that had a huge restaurant where all the truffle hunters were...it was fantastic...would you know what the name of that restaurant was?

        i can ask-- am going truffle hunting in October with a chef from the Bay Area and then heading up to San Miniato to the famous butchers! I assume you are coming for the festival in November?

        I know there is a famous place down the hill--- in the countryside-- name isn't coming to me!

            Yes, coming up the 9th and 10th of Nov for truffle festival...Loved it last time I was there. Any suggestions on where to stay? I stayed in the hotel on top of the hill (next to the truffle tent) last time. Was thinking Hotel San Miniato this time.....
