Wildflower and monoflora honeys and other bee products,
fruit of our supply chain.
If I had to express the essence of wildflower honey in one word, I couldn’t find a better adjective than hospitable. in fact, while monofloral honeys express the territorial predominance of a bloom and the uniqueness of a specific nectar, multi-flower honey tells the intertwining of the different blooms that embody the many souls of the same place. Hospitality means mixing, multiplicity, diversity. It would be a big mistake to consider this characteristic of the wildflower as a negative element, something that makes this honey a product of lower quality than monofloral honeys, a honey – as some say – ‘common’ and ‘ordinary’. First of all, honey – if it really is honey – is anything but ordinary. And if it is a great multi-flower honey it can only be unique like the endless possibility of combinations between nectars of different origins. A honey, in short, made totally according to the chef’s ‘taste’ (which would be bees), or almost… No wildflower is ever identical to another. And if we consider all the possible combinations of the plants that are part of it, it is almost impossible to determine precise and recurring characteristics that a multi-flower should have. The breadth of aroma and perfume is an essential touch of the millefiori; with its different floral notes, its ‘spacing’ and its unexpected aftertastes, it is certainly a honey that never leaves you indifferent.
