December

Late Season

the weather is getting colder, the days shorter

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.

Season ends

Truffles are often available until mid-January

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.
