Truffle Dinner

The Grandest of Truffle dinners is happening again!

Our award winning kitchen will take you on a journey of all things "Tartufo" with an indulgent five course menu.  

Joining us for the evening is the God Father of Australian truffles - Stuart Dunbar

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stuart Dunbar - Yarra Valley Truffles

Stuart Dunbar planted his truffiere (truffle orchard) a decade ago and it’s been a labour of love which reached full-time production just last year. 

He is currently Australia's biggest producer of black truffle, as well as the record holder for Victoria's biggest truffle and the worlds biggest Perigord Black Winter Truffle at a very impressive 1.5kg. He is one of the most engaging and passionate truffles expert and its a joy to hear him talk. 

If you love Tartufo as much as we do then this is an evening not to be missed. Our sommelier has perfectly matched our truffle inspired dinner with equally decadent wines.

Need we say more!?
