L’Air Du Wombat Truffle Hunts
23/06/2018 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am$65
There’s nothing quite like the serenity of a crisp winter morning following the experienced truffle dogs in their quest to find the black winter truffle. Their excitement for the hunt and their reward when they find a truffle odour is a unique sight.
Your guide will explain everything you want to know about truffles, the farm and how we started. Truffles can be mysterious and aloof, hiding snugly. So when the truffle dogs indicate there is a truffle from the odour they are trained to detect, we will venture to the location and, like archaeologists, we gently dig into the ground, tracking the aroma in the soil until we find our black diamond. The illustrious black winter truffle! The excitement builds as we unearth the ground around it in the hope of finding a black truffle. The aroma is both unique and delightful and, as you gently remove the gem from the earth, the feeling of success is overwhelming. You can’t help but wonder who was the first to find a truffle in such a way and decide to eat this delicacy.
Truffle hunts include a light snack containing truffle and refreshments after the hunt. Unfortunately, there is no discount for children unless they are being carried by an adult.
Numbers are limited to 25 so bookings are essential.
We ask that you arrive at least 15 minutes prior. There is ample parking on the property as public transport is not available.
This is a walking tour outside on our rural 10 acre truffiere so closed-in shoes along with appropriate warm winter clothing is required.
Umbrellas may also be an idea as hunts continue in all weather conditions. In order for everybody to enjoy the hunt and for the safety of all participants, children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
