Forage & Feast in Eugene: Truffle Hunt and Winery Luncheons

Featured Guests: Shane Tracey, John Newman

Epicurious and Gourmand weekend guests will experience an authentic truffle hunt lead by professional truffle hunters with their dogs, followed by winery luncheons featuring top culinary talent and foraged Oregon truffles.

New This Year!

You ask, we deliver! For our Forage & Feast package holders on Saturday January 26th, you’ll be able to choose from our classic multi-course winery luncheon with carefully chosen wine pairings, featuring a guest chef in a gorgeous wine country setting, or a luncheon designed to pair truffles with some of Oregon’s best brews at Alesong, nestled below King Estate winery. This tour will begin with a glass of wine at King Estate. The choice is yours but get your tickets soon, as space is limited at our brewery partner Alesong. This option will fill up quickly and is not for the gluten free.
