What’s the Buzz – Honey Tasting with Noel Patterson

October 18, 2023 @ 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM


Wednesday, October 18, 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM. What’s the Buzz – Honey Tasting with Noel Patterson. Cost: $77.00 per person.

Like wine, cheese and chocolate, honey has joined the ranks as an artisanal obsession. Experience Sonoran Desert honey like never before and taste it like a sommelier tastes wine with beekeeper and sommelier Noel Patterson of Dos Manos Apiaries. You’ll explore and learn how flowers and terroir affect its characteristics.

Honey has a circuitous journey before ending up in a jar. Climate, terroir and available botanical sources are the starting points. Then it’s up to the honeybees visiting the flowers with the activity of the beekeeper concluding the process.

As you sample each of the 6 offerings on fresh fruits, cheeses and nuts, Noel will empower you to trust your senses and be less analytical in your approach to flavors. You’ll also learn the flora and exact Southern Arizona and world  origin locations.

You’ll discover how each honey is a unique reflection of the time and place where it was harvested, giving you the knowledge to make sustainable and delicious choices when buying it.
