Description Known in Sardinia as Miele Amaro (Bitter Honey), this delicacy is produced from the unusual and beautiful evergreen shrub of the the Arbutus or Strawberry Tree (Arbutus Unedo)
Taste Taste definitely bitter, persistent
Curiosity To get different botanical origin of honey, Pierpaolo and Fabrizio move the beehives in various areas, following the different blooms. This is referred as 'nomadism' and, as with other agricultural activities, weather conditions play a crucial role. That's why the characteristics and the availability of these honeys may vary depending on the year. The families are moved only during the night, in order to be positioned at sunrise on the harvest field
Suggestions Beautifully paired with flavors of cream cheese or butter, with ricotta cheese and robiola cheese. It goes very well with fresh and sweets cheeses, in general

Why we chose them
Several years ago Pierpaolo and Fabrizio bought three beehives to pollinate the fruit trees belonging to the family farm and also to put into practice their studyies about this charming subject: the beekeeping. Friends' first comments about their honey were enthusiastic and over time the passion became a job: today the company boasts 200 beehives and people can taste Cazzola honey all over italy. To obtain honeys that come from different botanic origin, beehives are brought on different florescence during the year: this operation is called "Nomadism" . Families are moved only during the night to be placed in a new harvesting field when the sun rise. The new field is 2 km far from the last field, so bees can orient and find easily the beehive in the new place. Like in the other agricultural activities, the weather conditions play a key role in beekeeping: for this reason honey features and his availability can change depending on the year. Cazzola's secret is only one: not to change what the nature created in a perfect way.
