New Zealand Winter Truffles, harvested from June through to September, are available when Northern Hemisphere Truffles are not.
Grown in the picturesque North Island of New Zealand where volcanic ash soils, long hot days and short sharp periods of rain result in the perfect truffle growing conditions creating delicious, fragrant truffles. Perigord black truffles (tuber melanosporum) are the champagne of truffles for discerning chefs who treasure its earthy aroma and rich chocolate flavour.
All truffieres have gone through a certification programme employing DNA testing by one of New Zealand’s leading produce verification laboratories.
Certification is available on request.
