About the day:
On landing you will be greeted by the owner/operators Bill & Jax Lee and introduced to their beloved highly trained truffle dogs, of which make up an integral part of the team. Without them they would not be able to locate their truffles.
A short walk to the rustic shed to learn about and enjoy what is being grown and harvested by their family from the North Canterbury soils.
Sampling of the truffles will take place before you follow the noses of the dogs to explore and unearth this beautiful fungus in front of your eyes.
Experience the uniquely delicate smells as the truffles are unearthed and presented in front of you. Bring your wallet as there is an opportunity to purchase these “Diamonds of the Kitchen” to experience creating your own flavorsome dishes at home.
You will receive your own fresh Truffle Butter Roll to take home with you. Hand crafted using only the best ingredients and plenty of fresh black truffle, with absolutely no artificial aroma or flavoring. 10% TRUFFLE!
Easy to use and perfect for finishing steaks, risotto, pasta, eggs, vegetables or simply smothered onto warm bread. The uses are endless and simple but the taste is extraordinary.
Continue the flavours to Black Estate Winery for a truffle dining experience.
This one day only experience is not to be missed and will sell out quickly. Book now and avoid missing the 2022 Truffle season.
