Take a step back in time and enjoy the flavors of this popular Medieval Elixir. Our Mead is made with similar recipes used in Medieval Times.

The honey for this specialty dessert-style wine is produced in hives throughout Northern California. It is composed of a blend of three types of honey: alfalfa, sage and orange blossom. Each type brings a unique quality to the blend and contributes to the overall complexity of the Mead. Alfalfa is neutral in flavor but yields a dark, amber color. The orange blossom brings a floral bouquet to the nose of the wine. Sage brings subtle nuances into the blend.

This wine is produced utilizing fresh honey without the addition of artificial flavorings, concentrates or artificial colorings. The use of pure, raw honey contributes to the intense, fresh flavors of this natural product.

Enjoy Honey Mead Chilled or With Spices

The Mead can be enjoyed in one of two ways, either chilled or heated with spices to create a delicious wintry drink.
