Become a Knight

Since as long ago as 1967, the year of its founding, the Order of the Truffle and Wines of Alba has knighted people who, for their professional activity or particular merit in the field of food and wine,  have demonstrated and demonstrate a genuine interest in and passion for the Langa.

Anyone who has a love and interest for wine, truffles and the landscape of this area can apply to become a member of the Order of the Knights of the Truffle and Wines of Alba.

The application and curriculum vitae should be filled in and sent to the Order by e-mail addressed to: segreteria@cavalierideltartufo.it.

Applications will be examined by the Order’s Grand Council, and applicants considered eligible will be invited to an Investiture ceremony during one of the Chapters held in the prestigious, historic Hall of Masks in Grinzane Cavour Castle.

An admission fee of € 150,00 will become payable. This fee includes: membership for the year in course, a neck-chain with a medallion bearing the member’s name, a certificate of proclamation, some publications, photographs of the Investiture, and the annual membership card (with a 10% discount on purchases made at Grinzane Castle). New members acquire the right to attend the Chapters organized by the Order, and the chance to introduce new Knights. Membership is renewable, subject to the payment of the annual fee fixed by the Ruling Council.
