“Having used truffles for many years, I am acutely aware that not all truffles of the same species are similar. Location, season, grading and handling, packaging and freight all have an impact on the quality of the Truffle that ends up in my kitchen."

“Three years ago I visited The Truffle & Wine Co.'s truffière at Manjimup in Western Australia. I like to know where the produce I use comes from and the conditions under which it is grown. Fourteen years ago host trees were inoculated with Perigord Black Truffle spores and today The Truffle & Wine Co. is producing tuber melanosporum, which is sold to the best restaurants around the world."

“The Manjimup area is known as a pristine horticultural area with a long history of producing high quality fresh food – and Manjimup truffles do not disappoint in this regard!"

“I have been using these superior Perigord truffles from The Truffle & Wine Co. since that visit and have found the quality of the truffles to be consistent and as good as any truffles from Europe, with a lovely distinctive earthy aroma. "The grading and quality control is excellent and within a few days of ordering I receive truffles in perfect condition." - Peter Gilmore | Quay
