The sweet chestnut blossoms in spring when the sun warms the mountains at the foot of the Alps. The sweet chestnut trees in the Mediterranean mountain region of Piedmont love this climate. From the nectar of the catkins and honeydew on the branches and needles of the plants, the bees make an unmistakable, strong honey.
Incidentally, the sweet chestnut is pollinated by around 100 other species of insects, which contribute to the creation of this honey specialty. An unmistakable aroma reminiscent of a warm and tart character of chestnuts.
