We will always ensure that you receive at least the truffle weight ordered as a minimum. Sometimes you could receive up to 10g free of charge. Truffles are of course a natural product and don’t grow to prescribed sizes.
We will try and send one single Truffle to match the weight ordered, but sometimes your order may be made up of multiple Truffles, depending on what we have available.
Truffles naturally release moisture, and their weight will decrease over time. So always aim to eat them as soon as possible after receipt.
Your order may contain Truffles that have been cut. Most orders will only contain whole Truffles, but sometimes Truffles are cut to inspect quality, to remove a natural imperfection, or to match the weight of Truffle ordered. This does not affect the quality or life of the Truffle.
Our Truffles are sourced wild and sustainably from the woods on private land. They are shipped to us via exclusive partners in the most world-renowned regions for natural truffle production: Trueul in Spain, Tuscany and Umbria in Italy, Manjimup in Western Australia.
Truffles will not occur naturally where soil is contaminated, and will only grow in clean earth. Wild Truffles like ours cannot be organic. Only farmed Truffles can be classified organic - if the whole farm is certified as such.
Black Truffles usually last 7-10 days and White Truffles 5-7 days. However, every Truffle is different so you should always aim to use them as soon as possible for the best experience.
We would recommend taking fresh Truffles out of the vacuum bag on receipt. Truffles naturally give off moisture so will start to ‘sweat’ if left sealed in the same bag for more than a couple of days. This will speed up decomposition.
Store your Truffle(s) in a closed glass jar or Tupperware box with lid, lined in kitchen paper. Always store in the fridge at 2-5 degrees. Change the lining paper and dry the container daily.
If storing for more than a day or two open your container every couple of days to allow the Truffle to breathe. Air the Truffle for a minute or so and change the cloth, wiping the inside of the container free of any condensation, before resealing.
If a light white mould starts to form on the surface of a Truffle there is no need to worry, it’s completely harmless, but should be brushed off as soon as possible with a clean toothbrush or similar.
Let the Truffle come to room temperature when ready to serve.

When eating fresh Truffles raw, we would recommend any full flavoured dry white wine, for example an Italian Pecorino, Verdicchio, or Falanghina. Alternatively try a new world Chardonnay or Viognier.
When eating cooked Black Autumn or Winter Truffles, try a full flavoured lighter bodied red wine, maybe a Sangiovese, Grenache, or a new world Pinot Noir.
Good quality sparkling wine or Champagne is always a good match with fresh Truffles, and is superb with fresh Truffle canapes!

We carefully brush all our Truffles with cold water to remove any dirt or debris before shipping. All our Truffles are therefore delivered cleaned with no further preparation required.
We recommend that our clients should wait a week or two after the official opening of the season before purchasing fresh Truffles, as early season tubers can be disappointing. We only list Truffles on our website once they are of sufficient quality.
Please contact us to discuss any amendments to your order – the easiest way to do this is by replying to the order confirmation you receive from us so we can easily access your order. We will try our best to accommodate your request but cannot guarantee any amendments after your order has been placed.
Once you have received a dispatch email, your order cannot be changed.
