Celebrating 50 years

Help us kick off our 50th year with a unique experience!

Bundle up in your winter finery and hike into the forest surrounding our vineyard to look for the elusive fruit of the earth. Our guided truffle hunting adventure includes Joey, a truffle hunting dog, guided by her experienced handler and owner, Ava Chapman.

We cannot guarantee we will find truffles, however, we have had luck in the past and look forward to sharing this experience with a small group of 10. Held entirely outdoors, we will require appropriate social distance between parties and ask that all guests wear an approved face covering.

Following the hike, we will raise our glasses to toast each other with a taste of Knudsen Vineyards wines, enjoying the spectacular views perched above our estate vineyard.

Truffle Foray FAQ’s

Held entirely outdoors, we recommend winter-appropriate attire such as winter or hiking boots, a winter coat, a thermal base layer and/or snow/ waterproof pants, hat and gloves. Because we will be in the forest and there is potential for rainfall and mud, we suggest bringing a change of clothes for after the hike – to freshen up before lunch.

You may have the opportunity to dig for the truffles, if Joey is able to sniff some out. A truffle shovel will be provided for you to borrow during the hunt. We are not able to guarantee that truffles will be found, but we have had success in the past!

We are not able to guarantee that truffles will be found, but if we find enough, we would love to send  everyone home with a gift! 

Held entirely outdoors, we will require appropriate social distance between parties and ask that all guests wear an approved face covering.

Lunch will be served on our spacious and heated outdoor terrace. Parties will be seated at their own tables, with a minimum of 6 feet of distance between tables.

We will require a 48-hour notice of cancellation in order to provide a full refund of event fees. After 48 hours, we will not be able to refund fees due to catering and hunt expenses.

We will notify all guests by phone and email if we have to cancel this event for any reason. We will do our best to reschedule the event while still in prime truffle season.

ABOUT KNUDSEN VINEYARDS

Established in 1971, Knudsen Vineyards has always been and remains a family endeavor. Our estate became the location of the first bonded commercial winery in the Dundee Hills in 1976, producing wine for about ten years. After that, we became a grower for other premium wine producers, and are renowned for our high-elevation Pinot noir and Chardonnay grapes. We produced our first wine under the Knudsen Vineyards label from the 2012 vintage, and in June of 2020 we opened The Outlook at Knudsen Vineyards, a tasting room dedicated to showcasing our estate wines.
