The Truffle & Wine Co. was established in 1997 when a small group of family, friends and business partners invested in a dream to harvest and share Australia’s fresh Black Truffles with the world. This dream was unearthed at the heart of Western Australia’s famed Seven Day Road location, in the town of Manjimup; and became Western Australia’s first commercial truffière.
The first distinctly aromatic truffle was unearthed on the 28th of July 2003; a perfect Black Truffle weighing 168 grams. Fast-forward to the 2016 season, the largest truffle found at the farm weighed 832 grams after it was washed and graded and was then auctioned off for charity, raising $2,500 dollars. Today, surrounded by vineyards, orchards and majestic rolling hills, our estate has grown to be known as the single largest producer of Black Truffles (Tuber melanosporum) in the Southern Hemisphere, producing more than half of Australia’s total production (in 2016). For anyone wanting to walk amongst the rows of trees, we tell them the distance needed to be covered is more than 40 kilometres.
