Honey from the Piccardo beekeepers has carefully been produced with attention to quality for years. The “Mielaus” project is the latest novelty in 2003/2004.
In Genoa’s historical centre – an unusual place for a farm – Piccardo produces acacia honey, chestnut honey, mead, an ancient “wine” whose tradition and taste have almost been lost in Italy. Nut and almond butters are tasty, delicious products, while truffle honey, only for foodies, is a delight that should be tasted with cold cuts and delicate cheese.
Piccardo produces therapeutic products such as propolis, royal jelly and propolis honey. Production and sales happen at the same location. Therefore, it is very interesting to see how honey, mead and related products are made.
Since September 2013 the encounter with the Zafferano di Rosso company, located in Rosso di Davagna, has allowed to produce a new product which everyone will love: sa

Mielaus is located at the ancient S.Giovanni Battista convent which was built in the 17th century by the Teatini friars. Being placed under Via Garibaldi, an area rich in history, culture and trade, in the 19th century it became one of the most famous butcher’s shops in Northern Italy.
After 10 years the laboratory continues to promote beekeeping through events, tasting, production and sales.
