Wine, Truffles & Jazz

Every year now in my town Estadilla, Huesca, Spain they do a black truffle jazz festival. Local & national jazz musicians get together & jam out. There are also a number of young local jazz students between the ages 15 to 18 yrs old that also play. For a local event it is very professional & the musicians are top class. They usually do the Trufi - Jazz from mid March to the last weekend of March. This yr was the 3rd yr that it was held.

The wine is from the 2 local Bodegas that are located in Estadilla, Huesca. Since this region has a very high alkaline ph soil, the wine tends to be very full bodied & aromatic.

Last but not least, the Black Truffle Tapas. They usually make 3 - 5 different types of tapas using black truffles. These are a big hit, even with people who dont really care for the black truffle. Tasty, tasty, tasty…………

Towards the end of October, the local nursery that sells black truffle trees, does a day out excursion for people who are interested in becoming black truffle farmers. We usually hook up experienced truffle farmers, people just starting out or people who are thinking of making a black truffle plantation. There is no charge for this, you just pay for your lunch, which usually costs between 10 & 12 Euros. We visit the nursery, freshly planted plantations & plantations that are producing. To say the least, it is a very interesting day out & a lot can be learned.
