Artisanal Honey Tasting Event @ Red Bee Apiary

Stephanie Webster

Join us for a Tasting Flight of Seven Artisanal honeys with Red Bee Apiary's own Marina Marchese. Learn how honeybees make this liquid gold we call honey, how location and nectar source determines a honeys color and flavor and how honey is harvested and extracted from the comb. Marina will show us how to taste and evaluate honey using the Honey Sommelier tasting guide in her new book "HONEYBEE Lessons from an Accidental Beekeeper." Each guest will receive one sample 2 oz. jar of Red Bee's signature Wildflower Honey.


Go to the Red Bee website to RSVP and pre-pay to reserve your spot.
