Tartuflanghe was founded in 1980 by Domenica Bertolusso and Beppe Montanaro. They started their careers with a restaurant called ‘Da Beppe’ in Alba, Italy. The restaurant was considered something of a pilgrimage for mushroom and truffle lovers, and their passion for Italian truffles inspired them to create Tartuflanghe. In the beginning, Domenica and Beppe wanted to give people the opportunity to taste truffle even out of season. Over the years, Beppe’s creativity inspired a whole range of truffle products in celebration of the famous tuber.
The company name was Domenica’s idea – ‘tartuf’ from the Italian word for truffle (tartufo), and ‘langhe’ from the Langhe region of Italy where the truffles are found.
