Candice Koseba is the founder of Sonoma County Bee Company. She will host a guided blind honey tasting (virtual!). Test your palate and honey knowledge with a taste of Sonoma County Bee Company’s wildflower honey, along with a side-by-side tasting of 4 mono-varietal honeys. Candice will guide the group with the Honey Tasting Flavor Wheel and Honey Color Guide that comes with this virtual tasting box. Learn about honey aromas, flavors, and what it’s like to be a beekeeper.
Sonoma County Bee Company’s honey is made of real flower nectar collected by real bees, made in small batches. 10% of honey sales are donated to the Sonoma County Beekeepers Association, whose mission is to have a thriving and sustainable bee population in Sonoma County. Candice Koseba is also the on-site beekeeper at the new Montage Healdsburg.
