Truffle Orchard Experience at Cartwright Truffiere

Presented by: Truffle Dog Co & Willamette Valley Truffles

Join us for an Exclusive Private Truffle Orchard Tour at one of the only productive truffle orchards in the United States!

During this experience, you’ll get the true feel of life on a Truffiere- that’s what we call a truffle orchard and experience the magic of truffle right from the ground!

You’ll interact with the truffle dogs at the farmhouse, trek through the Oak and Hazelnut truffle grove, and follow the dogs as they expertly wind their way among the truffle trees searching for the elusive fungi. We’ll also share with you the history of the farm and truffle cultivation as the dogs search the wet ground for the truffles, and when they find one, you’ll have the opportunity to sniff the soil for the mouthwatering smell of the unearthed truffle- a rare treat, before heading back to the farmhouse to enjoy some truffle tastes, bites, and bubbles from excellent local Oregon wineries.

This experience is available for up to 12 of our Alumni and students! Dates are extremely limited. Please leave your dogs at home or in the cars, as they are not allowed on the truffle orchard during this event.

***If this experience says SOLD OUT Please contact us directly to be added to the waitlist for this or other opportunities upcoming such as our January Dates.

Description

Join us for a Truffle hunting experience at Cartwright Truffiere nestled in the beautiful southern Willamette Valley, on Dec 12th, 2021.

This event starts at 9:30 am

We ask guests to arrive 15 minutes prior to starting.

9:30 am- Meet on the farmhouse deck for light refreshments (coffee, tea, mimosa, orange juice etc.) and a discussion on the history of truffle production in Oregon as well as an introduction to the farm.

9:45-10 am--The exciting part. Let’s go hunting! You and the rest of the band of adventurers will team up with our four-legged associates and head out into the truffière. What will we find? What do they feel like? Do they have different aromas? So many quetsions and the dogs are here, ready to answer them.

You will have a ring-side position watching our dog teams operate in partnership to locate ripe truffle. And when they do, you will have a hands-on opportunity to smell truffles in the soil and perhaps even dig them out for yourself. Please wear clothes that can stand a bit of mud for that reason! This is a farm afterall!

11-11:15am (depending on truffle): The next exciting part. Back to the farmhouse where one of our incredible local wineries will be providing a paired wine tasting along with a homestyle truffle lunch, put together at the whimsy of our guest chef. While enjoying your lunch plenty of tips and tricks to using truffle will be shared. Any truffles that are available will be available for purchase at a special rate not normally offered to retail customers. Noon on: Depart, swag in hand, ready to explore what the Southern Willamette has to offer.

 

About the Truffiere
