The combination of wine and honey
In the course of history, the combination of wine and honey has always been greatly appreciated, and the practice of adding honey to wine continued up to Renaissance times. Today, wine is drunk without the addition of any sweeteners to the glass. The odours of honey are the result of the natural way in which the grapes are processed during harvesting and production.
