Truffle Time at Black Estate

Our two local truffiéres and their respective dogs are bringing in the goods… Bianchetto white truffle has just come in from Gareth and Rosie at Limestone Hills, and Kings Truffles’ Perigord truffles are on the menu next week, thanks to Jax and Freddy.  Delicious, aromatic and comforting – lush with Pinot Noir, butter, and starch. It’s a wonderful time of year.

We are open all winter, Wednesday – Sunday, for cosy fireside dining and an abundance of truffles on the menu.

Truffle Lunch – Saturday 28 July

Tickets to our annual Black Estate Truffle Lunch are now up at dashtickets.co.nz.

Join our crew at Kings Truffles in Waipara Gorge to get up close and personal with truffles and hunt for them with Freddy the truffle dog. There’ll be plenty of soil smelling and a backdrop of North Canterbury’s most outrageous vistas.

Take a bus up to Kings Truffles from Christchurch for an 11am tour of the truffiérie. You will then be driven to Black Estate for a 5 course lunch using Kings’ and Limestone Hills’ truffles, matched with aged Black Estate wines. The bus departs Black Estate at 4pm for the city.

Tickets are $260 including bus, or  “just the lunch” at $225 per head which does not include a bus.  Tickets are limited.
Tickets available here.
