Truffle imports both food and wine, primarily for sale to restaurants and other retailers, but we do have a small number of private clients who understand our terms and conditions and who tolerate my grumpy-old-man nature. Truffle is unashamedly Euro-centric in taste. (This doesn't mean we have anything against local or Australian wines.) We represent many rare and some relatively unheard of (in NZ), European wineries. Our showroom is open to the trade, account holders and wine lovers. Please note that while our retail business, Truffle Food & Wine has now closed, Truffle Imports still welcomes genuine buyers. Details on how to find us can be found on our Contact Us page.
We supply a number of select retailers and restaurants with preserved truffles, truffle oils, pastes and vanilla extracts. These include our fine Italian truffle oils - made with extra virgin oil and a proper truffle extract, to the multi-award winning Ravida salt, to the wide range of Nielsen Massey vanilla extracts - as used by Jamie Oliver, Nigella Lawson and Heston Blumenthal, among others.
Truffle Fine Wines
Our wine store has over 500 different European wines for you to choose from, with Grower Champagnes and Rhone wines a specialty. We are the sole agents for many top European wineries as well as carrying small stocks of aged wines. Please note that many of these wines are stored in our climate control cellars and are not on display in our store, or on this site. Simply drop us a line letting us know what you're looking for and if we don't have exactly what you want we can probably give you an alternative from that region and in your price bracket.
Please note: Because many of our wines are only available on an annual allocation basis, our in-house range changes on a monthly basis. Phone and email enquiries are welcome.
