Following the huge success of last year’s inaugural Manjimup Truffle and Wine Festival, the event will return this year for yet another gourmet food and wine celebration.
The festival drew thousands to Manjimup, Pemberton, Northcliffe, Nannup, and surrounding areas for numerous sold-out events in 2022, which vastly supported the region during the effects of Covid-19 on the relevant industries.
Join the region’s best truffle producers, winemakers and chefs for three exquisite days of fine food and drink from Friday 23 to Sunday 25 June.
The Manjimup Truffle and Wine Festival will again showcase the best local producers with truffle tours, farm visits, truffle hunts, truffle and wine tastings, gourmet degustation dinners, entertainment, and wine masterclasses.
Whether it be attending dog hunts for truffles and cellar door tastings, meeting growers, tucking into degustation dinners or learning how to grow your own truffles at home, there’ll be something for every truffle enthusiast once again.
The Truffle Guy managing director, Fabio Deitos says it had been an incredible effort to get the first Manjimup Truffle and Wine Festival up and running with just a small band of volunteers, “But it shows how things can be done with good intentions and a great team.”
“There was a lot of motivation and passion from local producers who banded together to help make it a major win for the local community.
“Everyone really got on board and the event managed to achieve a massive audience through various mediums with a low budget,” Fabio shared.
Debbie Oliver from Queensland-based Lady Truffle Fine Foods is returning for the festival in 2023 and says that, while truffles are available all over Australia, those grown in the Manjimup and Pemberton regions are prized by chefs and discerning foodies.
