From hives to wine

MARK Collins, the recipient of Popular Mechanics Inventor of the Year 2014, SAB Social Innovation award 2014, and the Emerging Genius 2014 award, used his passion & love of nature to create a beehive that is both superior in design and aesthetics. BeePak hives, the world’s first composite flat pack and insulated beehive, has a plethora of design elements making it tougher, easier to clean, insulated to moderate temperature & predator proof and one of the most effective honey producing hives ever designed. BeePak hives are also user friendly for the hobbyist or novice beekeeper wanting to attract bees to their garden and can be custom wrapped in colours and design’s to create a living functional art peace for the garden.

Honey is immortal and never spoils. Astonishingly, archaeologists found edible, liquid honey in the tomb of King Tutankhamun being approximately 2 000 years old.

At a chance social encounter, over a glass of wine, a common interest set off a brain storming session that led to a partnership with Nina Steininger who shares the same passion for creativity, nature and sustainability and Ammon Righini being the founder and creator of the Cannabucha brand.

In conjunction with one of South Africa’s top award winning winemakers, this trio created Pheromone Wine, a smooth, easy drinking classic Bordeaux style blend infused with a hint of raw honey and 20mg of the finest whole plant spectrum CBD and aged in oak barrels for over two years, the result of which is said to be phenomenal.
