Honey

Beekeeping Tradition

Slovenia is a well-known beekeeping country and home of the indigenous Carniolan honey bee (Apis mellifera carnica) that is so precious that it was put under protection. The Vipava Valley has great natural conditions for keeping bees. The local beekeepers are steeped in an ancient tradition and produce outstanding honey. The most typical honey variety in the Vipava Valley is acacia honey; by moving the hives around to other foraging sites, other varieties can be produced as well.
