The Sweet Life

Honey Tasting

A Truly Different Flavor

Why not switch things up for your next wine tasting and include a honey tasting as well? Guest have the unique opportunity to visit a working apiary to learn how honeybees make this liquid gold we call honey. Umbria, the “Green Heart of Italy”, is packed with pollen-rich vegetation, making it the ideal environment for honeybees. Beekeeping in Umbria dates back to the first civilizations that inhabited the region, and was  perfected by the Etruscans and Romans.

Umbrian producers make chestnut honey, the bitterest of the classic honey varieties, wildflower honey, the most commercially used, alfalfa honey, and acacia honey. With our Honey Tours you’ll be guided through the whole honey process from hive to jar. Book a tour to discover the secret life of bees and sample our sumptuous local honey!
