This wildflower honey from Brezzo is a taste of Piemonte’s Alpine hills in bloom. Delicate blooms like yarrow, bellflower, and wild thyme dot the unspoiled valley of Valle Maira at the base of the Alps, providing a bountiful source of nectar for the honeybees that roam this part of northern Italy. They turn that nectar into a mild, multipurpose honey that’s as delightful as a sweetener for tea as it is on a cheese board.

While we may think of honey as one basic flavor, the range of honeys from Brezzo showcase a wide spectrum of flavors, each as unique as the flower it comes from. Honeys can range in color, texture, and flavor, from pale yellow, delicate, and floral to dark, toasty, and even spicy—all in addition to sweet, of course! With a combination of many delicate mountain wildflowers, this honey is mildly flavored and well-balanced.

For more than 50 years, the bee experts at Brezzo have dedicated themselves not only to delicious honey products, but to being good stewards of their land and its history. Based in Roero, in the northern Italian region of Piedmont, the third-generation members of the Brezzo family continue their grandfather’s legacy of care for the scenic beauty of the northern Piedmont hillside. Brezzo is one of the first companies in Italy to practice nomadism, gently moving their beehives from place to place in search of the best flowers and pollen to craft delicious honeys with a true sense of terroir. Today, they produce a wide range of monofloral honeys, sweets, fruit preserves, and other garden products with the same artisan care they’ve practiced for decades.

This pure, natural honey is not processed or heat-treated to protect its gentle flavor and healthy enzymes. As a result, it arrives crystallized thanks to its higher concentration of natural glucose sugars. If you prefer a more liquid honey, simply heat gently before using.

This wildflower honey has a delicately floral flavor and light taupe color. Its gentle sweetness will fit in anywhere honey is called for: in beverages, over yogurt or toast, or in baked goods. It pairs well with all cheeses, from milky ricotta to sharp aged pecorino.
