Truffle Hunting next September
Renting a villa near Siena (Castelnuovo Berardenga) next September 6 through September 13th. Can anyone recommend a truffle hunting tour or guide? Do you know if white truffles will be in season that early in September? Thank you.
September is likely too early for white truffles. Late October/early November is when the season begins. There is some truffle hunting done near village of San Giovanni d'Asso, which is south of Sienna. There is a small truffle "museum" in the town. There was a NY Times article written about the town 5-7 years ago. You can probably find it at www.nytimes.com.
