The Napa Valley Truffle Association was founded in 2006 after local Napa farmers planted their first filbert trees on the Valley floor. Additional trees were planted in three successive years and this first known Napa Valley “trufflecultier” conducted their first hunt in January 2011.

The idea that the tuber melanosporum will thrive, or even grow in Napa Valley will hopefully prove true in the years ahead, or, it may very well be folly.

But we, The Napa Valley Truffle Association, who so appreciate the difficult-to-describe earthy aroma and flavor of fresh truffles are hopeful that we will be on our knees in our own champs truffiers some day soon!
