Winery Truffle Lunch with Truffle Dog Demonstration at The Donum Estate

You are in for an amazing treat with this fun-filled gastronomic visual adventure. At the intersection of fine wine, sustainable farming and world-class art, the Donum Estate provides a captivating backdrop for this year’s Napa Truffle Festival. Embark on an immersive food and wine experience complete with a truffle dog demonstration in the Estate’s certified organic olive orchard followed by an exquisite truffle lunch, prepared by Michelin star chef Kelly McCown and host chef Ken Frank. The lunch, set in the Estate’s state-of-the-art winemaking facility, will feature fresh black truffles in every course, paired with Donum’s award-winning wines. During the event, you are invited to explore the Estate’s stunning grounds and artworks included within The Donum Collection on a self-paced walking tour.

Donum is a leader in single-vineyard, single-appellation Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from Northern California. Founded in 2001, the Donum Estate is situated in the acclaimed wine region of Carneros. The Estate includes a winemaking facility, a contemporary hospitality experience, an organic farm and The Donum Collection – one of the world’s largest private sculpture collections including artworks created by a global community of artists and leading practitioners from 18 nations across 6 continents. Additionally, after years of work to refocus on sustainability and soil health, Donum has achieved its CCOF Certification and Regenerative Organic Certified® status for all four of its Estate vineyards.

No truffle experience would be complete without truffle dogs! Join us on the grounds of Donum for a rousing truffle dog demo (petting encouraged!). Find out how truffle dogs are trained to find only mature truffles. See the highly trained truffle dogs in action as they sniff out and pinpoint truffles that are underground, normally undetectable by humans. Brush up on your Italian, as some of our truffle dogs were born and bred in Italy and only understand Italian!

Seats are limited and usually sell out very quickly, so reserve yours!

This event is open to 21+ guests only.
