It's National Honey Month...Beekeepers around the country are harvesting their liquid gold and celebrating the bounty with Honey Tastings!
If you did not know there are hundreds of different types of honey that can be tasted and evaluated similar to wine, each with its unique flavor profile determined by the nectar from the flowers visited by the honeybees then you need to come to a Honey Tasting. The unsung fact is that the essence of a honey is dictated by the terroir from the French word for earth, describing the unique combination of geographic location, climate and soil that give each honey its complex composition and tasting notes. As in wine making, terroir dramatically affects the flavor profiles of the honeys produced. You're invited to one of Marina's Honey Tasting events check the calendar below.
