Red Hill Truffle Hunt

  • 1898.jpg

Red Hill Truffles was the first farm to produce truffles on the Mornington Peninsula.

On June 19 guests can enjoy the thrill of the truffle hunt with Jenny and her dog Thomas plus a mushroom hunt with Cameron and an onsite truffle tasting lunch. Truffle hunts are held at the truffiere every weekend throughout the season.

Jenny and her dog Thomas will show you the truffiere and give you the opportunity to find a truffle under an oak or hazelnut tree in the rich volcanic soil of Red Hill. Learn about the history of the Red Hill Truffle farm and the mystery of the black truffle. Discover the intoxicating aroma and hear about the unique difference that truffles can bring to your next dish.

Explore with Thomas as he locates the scent and tracks down the elusive truffle. When Thomas locates a truffle he is rewarded for his find. Jenny will determine the readiness of the truffle for harvest.

Come and discover the excitement of the dig, and enjoy the experience of the truffle hunt and the opportunity to smell, handle, and photograph the freshly dug truffle.

You can even purchase a truffle that is found on the hunt.
