Honey: A Sensual Journey
Noel Patterson, Miraval’s resident beekeeper, believes that, like wine, tasting honey is a sensual experience, meaning that to fully taste the honey, you must use all five of the body’s senses. Also like wine, each honey has its own terroir that reflects the environment of the hive it comes from. Join Noel on this journey of the senses as you taste your way through a variety of local honeys and discuss the notes and flavors you experience along the way.
