AtTheJoy and the Anahata vineyard has teamed up with Emily Schmiedel, lead beekeeper for Jacobsen Salt Co. In 2019 we introduced 6 hives of Italian honeybees to the vineyard. We couldn’t be happier with this addition to our ecosystem on property. Not only do the bees play a key role in the beauty of the vineyard, they provide a nutritional value creating a sustainable natural environment for the long term health of the property. A significant added benefit to having the bees on property … Honey! A recommendation from Emily was to label the honey the same way we do our wines from the vineyard. There is clearly some quality hues when stating that our honey is produced from a LIVE Certified, Single vineyard Estate from the Eola Amity Hills AVA. The honey produced will be used to support non profits and will be available as a gift to our guests at AtTheJoy and also available through our online stores for our wine programs Lytle-Barnett and Aubaine.
