New festival with terrific truffles and fine wine in magic Manjimup, Australia

Truffle fans rejoice! Against the odds, there is still a chance to enjoy the famed fungi in Manjimup this year.

From June 24 to 26, the new Manjimup Truffle and Wine Festival in Western Australia will showcase the best local producers and makers with truffle tours, gourmet degustation dinners, dog hunts, farm visits, wine tastings, entertainment and wine masterclasses.

It’s an opportunity to take a unique discovery tour across the Manjimup and Pemberton regions and book truffle-themed experiences at numerous acclaimed venues including Truffle Hill Wines, Hidden River Estate, Ampersand Estates, Tall Timbers Manjimup, Pemberley of Pemberton, Stonebarn Estate and more.

Leading chefs from around the world will also be in attendance to experience the local truffle season, along with TV chef personalities Alistair McLeod and Laura Sharrad.

The event is supported by the Manjimup and Pemberton Chambers of Commerce, Southern Forest Food Council, Shire of Manjimup and Tourism WA.

It comes after the annual Truffle Kerfuffle, operating since 2011, was cancelled this year.

“We wanted to be sure the annual truffle season was marked in some way, given the Shire of Manjimup is the largest producer of black truffles in the southern hemisphere, so we will be opening our farm and truffle restaurant for the whole weekend to celebrate,” Truffle Hill Wine Director Stuart Hutchinson said.

“There are more than 60 local truffières and they provide 95 per cent of Australia’s production, so it’s important we continue to highlight what’s on offer.

“Demand for high-quality, high-value food and beverage products is increasing, with many consumers now seeking out specialised products and experiences – and the Shire of Manjimup has those in spades.”

Listed Sista Events is responsible for coordinating the festival.

“It’s an opportunity for the Manjimup-Pemberton community to host satellite events at multiple venues, both during the day and evening, to showcase the abundance of truffles and wines available,” organiser Mia Kriznic said.
