Description

Our handmade wildflower honey comes from bees of an Italian breed, in particular the “ligustica” breed, whose hives are located right in the middle of Tavignano’s vineyards. As for the wildflowers, these are specifically: acacia, white clover, sulla, alfalfa, sunflower and honeydew. These plants grow in the areas surrounding the estate and some even among the vineyard rows.

Bees are fundamental for our ecosystem and play a very important role also in that one of the vineyards. These insects, actually, act as vectors for the yeasts on the berries’ skin and help avoiding and keeping under control diseases and any injuries caused by atmospheric agents such as hail, through the healing effect they have on the grapes’ skins. As a consequence, vines result more productive with bees, especially in rainy seasons.

Furthermore, bees are the first sentinels of an unhealthy atmospheric environment, as they’re very delicate and susceptible to insecticides. They can survive and conduct their meticulous activity only in the absence of chemicals harmful to them. Tavignano’s vineyards are organic, therefore, for bees it’s a paradise!

The honey harvest period is in May for acacia flowers, while for the other flowers it goes from May to August.

Tavignano’s honey, dense and aphrodisiac, well expresses the well-being of our vineyards’ ecosystem and the happiness of our very important family of bees!
