The Saanenland's own Marco Paroni walked away with the gold medal at this year's Swiss Regional Products Competition. Paroni's mountain honey, which comes from three apiculture sites in Saanen, beat out several dozen competitors for the award.
According to Paroni, honey made Switzerland, but especially the Saanenland, is very tasty.
"The Saanenland provides the bees with a wide floral splendor," Paroni notes, "especially dandelions."
What's more, Paroni drains the honey directly from the honeycomb and cold bottles it to preserve maximum aroma and flavour. The gold medal-winning "Bergblütenhonig" is availalbe at online www.paronihonig.ch.
