Honey fest in Montalcino - from 10th to 12nd of September)

Montalcino’s Fortezza hosts stands with honey producers from all over Italy.

This is one of Italy’s most important honey fairs. The trade fair is accompanied by a convention and an awards ceremony to recognize the year’s best producers. The fear also includes market-exhibit of bee-hive products, make-up made from them and bee hive equipment.

It is not an everyday experience: An extraordinary and very original dinner entirely based on honey, from the antipasto to the dessert. There is a large market where every honey product imaginable can be found.
