This natural wildflower honey, known as “millebuche“, is produced by bees bred within La Montecchia Golf Club on the borders of the Euganean Hills Regional Nature Park. Respect and love for the environment are physiologically inherent in the game of golf, and since 1997 La Montecchia Golf Club has been concretely committed to this front, in fact it has chosen to share the international OperationPollinator project in favour of the development of habitats for pollinating insects. It also adheres to the BioGolf programme, maintaining golf courses without the use of chemicals and carrying out various studies and collaborations with various Italian universities, achieving national and international recognition.
Production area: Golf Club la Montecchia Colli Euganei (PD)

The word honey derives from the Hittite ‘melit’ to signify the very ancient knowledge of this sugary foodstuff. There are many documents attesting to its widespread use in ancient Egypt, or among the Sumerians and Babylonians. It was used for food, medicine, cosmetics, preservation but also for religious purposes, as the Greeks called it the food of the gods and used it for votive offerings. It is still a highly valued food today for its many properties and as a natural product. It can change its appearance over time due to a process of crystallisation that depends mainly on its natural over-saturated sugar solution or external factors such as storage temperature and the variety of the harvested flower.
