Sacremonte Truffle, Omarunui Road, Napier


All Ages

Ticket Information:

  • Tour: $69.62

You can take part in an exciting and unusual event in Hawkes Bay. An outing in the country searching for the elusive truffle. These exclusive hunts are a must-do for foodies. Numbers are strictly limited so book now to truly experience one of the world’s most exclusive food journeys.

The season in New Zealand is short (June to September), and truffle is not that easy to find – but we have an experienced truffle hunter, assisted by the great truffle hunter Bear (our dog).

We have hosted successful truffle hunts as part of FAWC festival in Hawkes Bay, and now you have the opportunity to take part in your own truffle hunt. We limit the number of people for each hunt to make sure that you have personal experience. Walk with the dog, get down and smell the earth to identify where that truffle is, and then dig through the soil to find the prize, Black Gold – tuber melanosporum – Perigord Black Truffle.

You will also learn about the Truffle industry in New Zealand and overseas, what is a truffle, how do they grow, what to look for in a truffle, and what they taste like (if the hunt is successful)
Truffle may be available to purchase, and we also supply ideas of how to care for and to cook with it.

Please include your email address when booking to allow for us to send detailed instructions of where to find us.
If you are from out of town and require accommodation have a look at The Manse for their truffle tour packages.

A limited amount of mobility is required to take part, and we recommend gumboots and warm clothing – it is winter and it can be cold.
