Our Honey

A selection of the best honey from the land of Ancient Sannio

Honey is produced by bees as a source of sustenance: after harvesting and processing the natural sugars, they store it in the honeycomb.

Origins of honey are very ancient: it seems that the word miele (honey) comes from the hittite melit, but it is a widely used food, appreciated by many ancient civilizations: Egyptian, Sumerian, Greek, Roman. Until the Middle Ages, honey still had a central role not only as sweetener, but also as preservative.

After the introduction of industrially refined sugar, the use of honey has fallen, but recently, thanks to its recognised therapeutic properties, it’s back on our table.
