Don't miss out on this once in a lifetime adventure. Only 9 spots left!

Begin your Oregon Truffle Festival experience early with the
Wine & Dine & Truffling Time Tour
in Oregon’s beautiful wine country
January 22 – 26, 2014
Daniel Winkler, director of Mushroaming LLC, a travel agency specializing in
fungal travel worldwide, will be your guide. He describes the tour below:
The Wine & Dine & Truffling Time Tour starts on Wednesday evening. We will meet in our hotel in downtown Portland (Hilton or Lucia). During a nice dinner in a downtown restaurant (details to be announced) we will get to know each other. Thursday morning we will leave Portland and search out a Douglas fir forest close to the picturesque Oregon wine country, where our first outdoor fungal adventure will take place. We will be hunting for the famous and delicious Oregon white truffle (Tuber gibbosum) with a trained truffle dog and an expert truffle hunter.
After the truffle hunt,we’ll visit local wineries and a farm specializing in olive oil production. We will be received with wines and olive oils to taste and appetizers to compliment the experience. The afternoon will conclude with an educational visit to Newberg’s new Wine Center in Dayton. Next destination will be The Inn at Red Hills in Dundee, six miles from Dayton. We will check in and get ready for dinner.
Thursday evening we’ll delight
in a multi-course truffle and mushroom meal at the famous Joel Palmer House located in Dayton. Joel Palmer House is on the National and Oregon Historic register and dates back to 1857; Chef Christopher Czarnecki took over the restaurant in 2008, which was founded by his great-grand father. Already his grand father focused on "fine dining with wine and wild mushrooms". Not surprisingly Joel Palmer House is regarded as one of America's leading restaurants, when it comes to mycophagy, or better the art of preparing culinary wild mushrooms. The wines for the dinner are provided by Seufert Winery.
After an early Friday breakfast, we will board our mini-van to drive to a forest habitat suited for hunting the fruity Oregon black truffle (Leucangium carthusianum). Once again we will be assisted by a trained truffle dog and an expert truffle hunter. After the Black truffle hunt we will continue our drive to Eugene (the distance from Dayton to Eugene is 85 mi). We expect to arrive at the Eugene Hilton approximately at 12:30 pm to check into our rooms. Many of the events of the Truffle Festival will conveniently take place in the Eugene Hilton.
