Every hungry Sicilian mouth waters at the mention of the word 'caponata': a preparation made with roasted vegetables in a sweet-and-sour sauce. Of course, the honey provides the sweet touch!
The southern region of Andalusia is known the world over as the cradle of flamenco music and for its contested annual bullfighting tradition. Thanks to its Mediterranean climate, it has a rich biodiversity and wildflowers grow virtually everywhere; the ideal feeding grounds for honeybees.

La Champagne, the region of northeastern France, is well known for its vineyards, but it also offers its bees an unbelievable diversity of flowers and blossoms. It is an ideal place for our favorite pollinators. In addition to vineyards, the Champagne region is a mixed cultural landscape with large fields with rapeseed crops and small forest clusters.
