A refined collection of natural honeys for discerning palates selected by My Venice

The strictly natural products are harvested with artisanal care in beautiful surroundings that are distinguished by their care for the environment and especially for pollinating insects.

The word honey derives from the Hittite ‘melit’ to signify the very ancient knowledge of this sugary foodstuff. There are many documents attesting to its widespread use in ancient Egypt, or among the Sumerians and Babylonians. It was used for food, medicine, cosmetics, preservation but also for religious purposes, as the Greeks called it the food of the gods and used it for votive offerings. It is still a highly valued food today for its many properties and as a natural product. It can change its appearance over time due to a process of crystallisation that depends mainly on its natural over-saturated sugar solution or external factors such as storage temperature and the variety of the harvested flower.
