Katankura

3.000 years ago, in the Chilean Andes, native people made thousands of perforated stones apparently for no reason. Mapuche tribes discovered those, many years later.

Seduced by the mystery of those stones, the mapuche named them: Katankura, which means “stone with a hole” in Mapudungun.

The Santa Fe farm is located in this place, which has a privileged Mediterranean weather and receives the rich waters from the mountains through two rivers: Ñuble and Cato. This place hides another mystery, the black truffle.

The black truffle is a symbol of the “haute cuisine” for its rarity, intensity and incomparable flavour, which is a mix of attributes from the earth, vegetation, water and weather of its habitat.

The 21st Century brings the challenge of growing this precious truffle outside of Europe. The province of Ñuble in the south of Chile, a blessed region for its generous nature, is today the cradle of our black truffle.
