Eat The Truth About Wine and Bees
Studying to be a sommelier is no easy feat, but how many people can say they passed honeybee biology? I can, and just like the finest wines, honey has its own terroir, which is influenced by our flying friends, bees, that act as nature’s pollinators. They have a knack for keeping vineyards healthy; plus, the nectar and pollen they extract from local flowers influence how our honey tastes. During my master honey-tasting class, learn how we pair our honey with food. Lighter varietals like orange blossom tend to go with tea, while deep wildflower honey is perfect for meat dishes, which go well with Napa Valley’s jammy red wines.
