The Wine & Truffle Co will officially open its cafe cellar door next week at its Manjimup property, about 10 years after the company set out to become a producer of the truffle delicacy.

The company’s truffle production has grown, from initially providing local restaurants with local grown truffles, to exports and an extensive product range, which includes truffle butter, oil, mustard, flour and hazelnut products.

A visit to the trufferie will provide the opportunity to learn more about the delicacy but also to indulge in some estate-grown wines.

The Wine & Truffle Co’s owners planted vineyards around the 13,000 oak and hazel trees when they established the business.

The Wine & Truffle Co is located on Seven Day Road, about seven kilometres west of Manjimup.

Restaurateur Kate Lamont will officially open the company’s cellar door on Tuesday July 24.

It’s held over six weeks, with the final week of the course taking place at a restaurant to help participants really grasp the fine art of food and wine matching. The Wine Essentials course commences on Monday July 23.
