First white truffle samples are unearthed. We decide which of the younger dogs will be ready to join this year's team. Truffles are not sold during this period.
Cavatori start the season and from now onwards will be out with their dogs from dawn to dusk in all weather conditions.
We begin taking orders. From hereon we make personal deliveries to clients in Italy, UK and the USA and make arrangements for special deliveries elsewhere

The 54th Acqualagna Truffle Festival begins on 27th October.
The most tiring time of the year for the hunters, the weather is getting colder, the days shorter. Dogs are rested and have days off but the “cavatori” never take a break.
Orders are placed early for the festive season rush. This is the busiest period.
Truffles are often available until mid-January but number and quality can no longer be guaranteed. As a result we do not take orders after the Epiphany (Jan 6th). The cavatori return to their homes to unwind.
