Truffle hunts are a favourite truffle experience during winter. This voucher is a ticket for one person to a truffle hunt on our farm, Truffle Paddock, in Gippsland Victoria, 100 Km for the CBD. We keep guest numbers to a maximum of six, so guests are really joining a small private truffle hunting party. The dates for our 2019 Truffle Hunts are Sunday 9 June, 30 June, 7 July, 21 July and 4 August.
What to expect?
Your guest will make their own way to our farm outside Grantville Victoria. On arrival at about 10 am we welcome you with coffee, teas and truffle honey on toast to warm up by the fire. Truffle stories follow from Festival Director Nigel Wood while you meet the truffle dogs.
Then it’s into the Truffle Paddock, watching the dogs and hunter work together. When a truffle is found, before it’s harvested from the earth, you’ll be invited to sniff its sublime perfume. We spend just over an hour in the paddock and then return to the truffle shack to warm up and enjoy a glass of Champagne with the freshest truffled scrambled eggs. You will learn how truffles are prepared for the table and graded, and be able to purchase any of the truffles found on the hunt. The hunt and taste usually concludes around 12.30/1 pm.
Tickets are transferable but cannot be cancelled – we hunt rain or shine! You can print this voucher at home for gifting.
