Paolo Pescia, a passionate second-generation honey maker, practices “nomadic” beekeeping. He transports his beehives to seasonally-flowering zones and protected national parks located from the coast of Tuscany to its hills. He uses this practice to produce monofloral honeys of stunning quality and flavor. All production is done by hand, including the scraping of the honey from their combs.
Dr. Pescia Chestnut Honey is made by bees which are placed in the chestnut woods of the coastal region of Tuscany. The bees, feeding from the nectar of Chestnut tree flowers, produce a honey which is dark golden-brown in color with an intensely pungent flavor all it’s own.
Chestnut honey pairs marvelously with all sorts of savory foods. Try it drizzled over pancakes, baked goods or with full-flavored cheeses, like Gorgonzola or Stilton for a truly unique cheese course.
