Like wine, cheese, and chocolate, honey has joined the ranks as an artisanal obsession. Experience Sonoran Desert honey like never before and taste it like a sommelier tastes wine with beekeeper and sommelier Noel Patterson of Dos Manos Apiaries. You’ll explore and learn how flowers and terroir affects its characteristics.
Honey has a circuitous journey before it ends up in a jar. Climate, terroir, and available botanical sources are the starting points. Then, it’s up to the honeybees to visit the flowers and the activity of the beekeeper concludes the process.
As you sample each of the 6 offerings on fresh fruits, cheeses, and nuts, Noel will guide you tracing what you smell and taste to the flora and exact Southern Arizona origin location.
You’ll discover how each honey is a unique reflection of the time and place in which it was harvested, giving you the knowledge to make sustainable and delicious choices when buying it.
