From 1 June to 31 August every year, the air in the Manjimup, Western Australia is filled with the earthy, intoxicating aroma of fresh black truffles.
The rich soil and temperate climate in Manjimup are what makes this area so suitable for growing truffles, and Western Australia is now the biggest producer of black Périgord truffles outside of Europe.
The Truffle & Wine Co. is Western Australia’s first truffière, and its 40 kilometres of truffle tree rows and 12 hectares of grapevines make it the largest producing truffière in the Southern Hemisphere.
A visit there is a must if you’re in the region, and they offer the unique experience of going on a truffle hunt where highly trained truffle dogs will guide you to discover and locate the rare and delicious black winter truffle.
These exclusive hunts are a must do for foodies or those who love farm-to-plate experience.
Relax in the café afterwards for luxurious dishes infused with truffles, and don’t forget to visit the Cellar Door for a spot of wine tasting and take home goodies.
The season is coming to an end so if you haven’t already been, it’s time to pay them a visit. It’s a fun day out for the whole family!
