Would not have known about this honey were it not for the Groupon. Very informative workshop and excellent honey. The honey tasting alone was worth it. (I thought the honey was better than the wine.)

Great workshop! My friends and I had a lot of fun learning, whether we planned to keep bees or not. We went to the one hosted in Livermore. Great introductory course!

What You'll Get


Much like silk, honey comes from an insect and makes for an attention-grabbing evening gown. Make a delicious statement with this Groupon.

Choose from Three Options

  • $25 for a two-hour Intro to Beekeeping workshop with a one-hour honey and wine tasting for one (a $90 value)

During two-hour workshops, attendees witness the basics of beekeeping, learn how to build a honeycomb foundation and hive, and observe a live bee colony housed in see-through hives to prevent stinging. Beekeepers also illuminate guests on the processes of honey production, pollen storage, and wax building. The experience transforms from a class to a tasting for the final hour, when students are invited to sample wildly different monofloral honeys from specific locales or plants, such as star thistle, wildflower, and black sage. Then visitors aged 21 and older will visit the wine-tasting room to sample wines from the tasting menu for that day, which includes red and white varieties.

About Gerard'Z Honeybees


More than a century ago, an industrious farmer named Gerard enlisted the help of bees to pollinate his family estate. Inadvertently, the buzzing insects fertilized a new passion for Gerard, one that would become a family tradition.

Four generations later, Gerard’Z Honeybees' bustling hives create more than a dozen local and monofloral honeys from such plants as star thistle, orange blossoms, and avocado blossoms. Because the honeys are completely raw and natural, they maintain the micro-nutritious qualities often left out of industrial varieties, and they may help allergy sufferers to acclimate to their local pollen varieties.

Gerard’Z holds year-round beekeeping workshops and honey tasting seminars at local wineries, nurseries, and farmers’ markets throughout the Bay Area and Central Valley. During the classes and tastings, bee experts demystify the process of maintaining a hive, and people get the chance to taste the difference between clover honey, buckwheat honey, black sage honey, and Doritos honey. Gerard’Z also helps to maintain the delicate honeybee population by finding homes for wild swarms or colonies that have built hives in unwanted places and might otherwise fall prey to exterminators.
