Italian Wildflower Honey from Tuscany

Millefiori Honey—translating to “One Thousand Flowers” in Italian—is made from the nectar of literally thousands (if not millions) of flowers blooming in the rolling Tuscan countryside. This Italian wildflower honey is rich, full-bodied and complex with notes of chestnut, flowers, dry herbs and sweet woody aromas.

Each harvest is a reflection of the particular flowers that were growing in a particular place, so Millefiori Honey can vary from year to year. However, master beekeeper Franca Franzoni releases her bees in areas with a similar predominant mix of flora, giving her honey a more consistent flavor year after year.

How to use

Millefiori Honey is equally delicious as a table-top honey and as a cooking honey—swirl into your morning yogurt or oatmeal, add a spoonful to marinades and dressings or use in baking.

Make a sweet whipped honey butter for your breakfast table—whip one part honey and three parts softened unsalted butter until light and fluffy, and slather over freshly baked scones, buttermilk biscuits or thick slices of toasted levain bread.

About the Producer

Franca considers herself a partner in the bees’ efforts: aiding in the building of hives, directing foraging paths, carefully monitoring collection and movement and waiting for just the right moment to harvest the honey. Her passion for beekeeping and knowledge of the local landscape of blooms ensures that Franca’s honey is always an incredible, clean artisan product..

Fantastic flavor

The color, consistency and flavor of this honey is incredible. I have never enjoyed honey, but this is wonderful!


Imagine this is what floral honey is supposed to taste like. Maybe too floral for some, the taste is a sweet burst of flowers, delicious. Definitely buying more.

The best honey in the world!

This is a very MASTER PRODUCT if you're lucky enough to buy some you will enjoy just the top top. But usually is sold out. Try and see if you are lucky!

Franca's Honey is Out of This World!

I first tried this honey at a restaurant in the Bay Area and just had to have it! Who knew eating honey could be such an experience? It's delectable! This "Thousand Flower Honey" has changed the way I think about and eat honey. This year, I'm sharing my treasure with all of my friends as Christmas presents, along with the story behind Franca's painstaking devotion to her bees!

Going nut's for honey.

Very unique flavor. You can taste the nut flavor this Is a bit more flavor than traditional honey. Worth the experience.
