Quality Périgord Black Truffles
At Amuri Truffiere our mission is to produce the best quality Périgord Black Truffles available outside of their native France. We are able to achieve this due to our unique site characteristics and careful management.
Amuri Truffiere supplies truffles to some of New Zealand's top restaurants and lodges, and direct to the public.

Grown in Limestone Soils
The limestone rich Rendzina soils of the Truffiere are derived from the underlying Amuri Limestone. This is the same soil type in which truffles are grown in their native France.
We believe it is this ideal combination of lime rich Rendzina soils and the warm dry climate of North Canterbury that results in the quality of our truffles being as good as those grown in France.

ON THE NOSE
Gavin Hulley of Amuri Truffiere has developed a keen sense of smell, something that comes in handy in harvesting season. Sophie, Gavin's highly trained truffle sniffing dog, does the initial hunt for ripe truffles, then Gavin checks to make sure the truffles are ripe for harvest.
With more than 11 years production experience under our belts, we have been able to fine tune our quality control to ensure you get the best quality Périgord Black Truffles that have the maximum aroma and flavour.
Sophie waits patiently while Gavin checks if the truffle she found is ready to harvest.
Most years our season starts with a few truffles in early June with production increasing to a reliable supply of truffles from mid to late June to late August. Some seasons production extends to mid September but in smaller quantities.
