Welcome to Wine & Country Life

Albemarle Co Wildflower

Harvested from Albemarle County hives of the Virginia Piedmont, the bees that made this honey feasted on local wildflowers, perhaps at Castle Hill Cider or Bareboursville Vineyards. Every batch of wildflower honey is unique based on the weather and flower turnout of that season, this honey truly captures a time and place in a jar.

Flowers contributing to this honey are a unique blend of Crimson Clover, Tulip Poplar, Cherry, Blackberry, Black Locust, Goldenrod, Native Sunflowers, Ironweed, Buckwheat, Brassica, Milkweed, Sunflower, Black and Brown Eyed Susans, Wild Bergamot, Purple Coneflower, Blue Lobelia, Elderberry, Silky Dogwood, Winterberry Holly, Devil’s Walking Stick and more.
