HONEY NOT WINE! BEEKEEPERS WEEK IN MONTALCINO: SEPTEMBER 2013

With all the talk about the importance bees have for everything on this planet, it's a relieve to hear that Italy still counts 75'000 beekeepers.  

Meet some of them in Montalcino this weekend in September and taste a few of the country's 51 official types of honey. Some of the most popular in Tuscany are chestnut, wildflowers and acacia (my favorite!). And no need to say it, they taste best on top of a piece of Pecorino cheese from the Val d'Orcia
