It is collected from the nectar and the honey dews of the Chestnut (Castanea sativa) also known as “Queen of the mountain”, in the virgin forests of the Southeastern Peloponnese at an altitude of over 800m from early June until July.

The honey dews are produced by the aphid “Myzocallis castanicola” that is found under the leaves and on the “cups” which surround the nuts of the tree. The nectar and the honey dews are usually accompanied by nectar dews of various wild flowers and herbs. So the collected honey is a real feast of flavors. It is a unique type of honey less sweet than all the others with a slightly bitter taste. Its special aroma and its racy flavor make it distinguish.

After harvesting, the honey is carefully filtered and packed directly into glass jars in our modern facilities. The whole process does not exceed one month from the time of harvest. Then it is stored in a dark, dry place at low temperature ready to be released for consumption. The miraculous Greek nature combined with the care and the guarantee of the family Fasilis offer an excellent product.
