TAMAR VALLEY TRUFFLES
International and local chefs now recognise Tamar Valley Truffles as one of Australia’s leading producers of the Black Perigord Winter Truffle. It is Tasmania’s largest family owned and privately operated trufferie. It is located on the beautiful Lake Trevallyn in the Tamar Valley, 15 minutes from Launceston’s central business district. Encompassing about eight hectares, a total of around 3000 oak trees were planted in 2000 and 2001. The first truffles were harvested in both 2004 and 2005. In 2014, a range of Truffle products were released to compliment the fresh truffles already widely distributed, including a delicious selection of truffle enhanced butter, oil, risotto, shortbread, cheese, mustard and honey.
The range is beautifully packaged with a distinctive gold embossed oak tree on the label.
