Date: 02-Apr-2009 News Blog

The 2009, Western Australia, Black Truffle season promises to be the best season yet for the Wine and Truffle Company.


Here are the details and an open letter from the Wine and Truffle Company, inviting chefs and restaurateurs to access and enjoy this wonderful product.


We're just a month away from being able to deliver our rare 'Tuber Melanosporum French Black Truffle'

from Manjimup, Western Australia. The 13,000 Hazelnut and Oak trees have performed beautifully over the

last nine months and we are expecting our largest harvest ever.

The 2009 truffle winter harvest will begin at Hazel Hill late May and run through to the mid/end of August.

This letter is to inform you of the sales and distribution we have in place to ensure you get the freshest

truffles and the best service possible.

We have adopted a "farm gate to plate" approach. This will be in direct contact with the

truffle hunter, Damon Boorman, which is intended to improve communications and ensure you get the

freshest truffles possible through our fast, reliable priority freight service.

Every morning during harvest Damon and a team of trained dogs will walk the truffiere at Hazel Hill in

search of the ripest truffles. Once the days' truffles are found, they are taken to our processing centre for

cleaning, weighing, grading and dispatch, guaranteeing the freshest and best quality truffles.

You should fax or email your orders directly to Damon, We will be able to track your order from the farm all

the way to your restaurant door, you will receive your truffles within 36 hours of them being found.
