Dolomiti Bellunesi Honey PDO

The natural environment and the richness of local flora are the ingredients for a high quality honey that, in some wild and pristine areas and thanks to the experience of skillful beekeepers, is obtained though organic production methods. The Dolomiti Bellunesi Honey PDO can be spread on a slice of fragrant bread for a great snack.

Among the most traditional varieties of honey there is the mixed flower honey the acacia (black locust) and chestnut honey, the latter made in the areas of Feltre and Valbelluna; some beekeepers make particular types of honey such as dandelion or lime.

In the upper part of Belluno, in the Comelico area, you can also find rhododendron honey, very appreciated but with a limited production which makes it a rarity. Little known but to discover, the fir honeydew honey, a typical alpine production; it is a liquid honey, with a dark color and a slightly balsamic scent.

Beekeeping is now a growing business also in Belluno and is practiced mainly by small farmers that guarantee a craftsmanship quality. The best way to buy honey produced here is applying directly to the producers who are often at markets or fairs that take place in various locations in the province.
Worth a try, a mix between cheese and honey or jam: you must taste chestnut honey with Morlacco del Grappa cheese and acacia or mixed flower honey with a piece of Piave mezzano cheese.

The Dolomiti Bellunesi Honey PDO is protected by “Apidolomiti” (Beekeepers Association of the province of Belluno), established in 1973 with the purpose of providing assistance and training beekeepers paying particular attention to the bee's health and the guarantee of quality. This product is also included in the “Carta Qualità” of the Dolomiti Bellunesi National Park (a circuit including and recommending to tourists and residents the facilities and products for deeply linked to the “Park system”).

Every October takes place the “Festa dell'Apicoltura e dell'Agricoltura” (beekeeping and agricultural fair) in Limana (called the Honey town), conceived to raise awareness of the Dolomiti Bellunesi Honey PDO and other typical food products.
