Got a special occasion dinner coming up? We've got you covered! Three of our favorite meads for pairing with seasonal foods or making special drinks. First, Traditional Mead Off-dry, a drier alternative to white wine that tastes like honey. Then, a seasonal favorite, Cranberry Orange Mead. And finally, our queen bee Honeyed Spiced Apple - amazing warmed up or chilled - with pretty much anything! Great gift or for yourself to have a selection on hand.
Not your typical Mead! Our Off-dry Traditional honey wine, created from North Carolina wildflower honey, has just a hint of sweetness. Light floral notes with a slight citrus finish. Serve as you would a white wine, lightly chilled with Lemon Chicken, fish, or with spicy food!
Our Apricot Mead is a lightly fruity reminder of cool springtime mornings. This wine is crisp and tart with subtle spice notes and a lingering stone fruit flavor. Reminds us of a sauvignon blanc. Pair with fish or chicken, shrimp scampi, or feta and goat cheeses.
Our Blueberry Mead has a crisp, lightly fruity flavor. With a floral aroma in the background behind the blueberry scents. It’s like walking through a blueberry patch. Foods that you would normally serve with a red table wine are great pairings with this mead. Serve at cellar temperature.
Our seasonal favorite with spicy peppers! This seasonal mead has the juicy flavors of Cranberry and Orange, kicked up a notch with local, hand smoked and dried jalapeno peppers from Copeland Springs Farm, right across the street from the meadery. Fruity and tangy in the beginning, smoky in the middle, with a hint of heat at the end. Serve slightly chilled with everything from baked chicken to shrimp and grits!
A sweeter honey wine created with North Carolina wildflower honey. Our Semi-sweet Traditional Mead has a fabulous floral honey nose and long lingering honey flavor with a crisp, clean finish - never syrupy or cloying! Just what you would expect from mead! Fabulous with spicy or hot foods, but divine with NY style cheesecake!

This semi-sweet traditional mead is made with Wildflower and Meadowfoam honeys. Meadowfoam flowers, native to the Pacific Northwest, add a strong vanilla/marshmallow flavor to the hone and therefore to the mead. Enjoy at room temperature around a campfire or pair with your favorite curried dish. Crazy toasted marshmallow flavor!
We have taken the classic holiday flavors of Cranberry and Orange and created a new holiday tradition! This slightly sweet honey wine is bursting with flavor. Tart and tangy, yet lightly honey sweetened! A perfect complement to all of your holiday meals, from turkey dinner to baked ham. Or mix with sparkling wine for an unusual mimosa-style beverage for your holiday brunch!
This fruity, slightly sweet wine is easy to enjoy! Honey flavors play in the background, while the plum dances in the foreground of this treat. Whether pairing with Orange Chicken or a Thai Fish Cake, this will cool the burn and elevate umami flavors. Try in your favorite sangria recipe! Suggested serving temperature is 50 degrees.
The luscious summer flavor of blueberries preserved with honey for any time of the year. Fruity, sweet , and jammy this wine is lovely on its own or paired with a summer salad or barbeque. Or make sangria with strawberries and blueberries. Chill before serving.
Honeyed Peach reminds us of ripe, juicy summer peaches, bursting with flavor. We enhance the sweet flavor of NC honey with the juiciness of 100% peach juice. Peaches and honey! Serve this sweet wine chilled at a picnic or use it to brighten up your favorite pork or spicy chicken dish!
Apple pie in a glass! Honeyed Spiced Apple has a wonderful apple flavor enhanced with the spices of cinnamon, clove and nutmeg. Chilling brings out the apple flavor and warming gently in the crockpot brings out the spices! Just like spiced apple cider for grownups! Great with turkey dinner, pumpkin pie, carrot cake or spice cake! Or... just by itself!
Reminiscent of a well known Scandinavian drink made with Caraway, Fennel and Anise seed, this combination makes a tasty digestive. Flavors of licorice and rye bread, uniquely savory and sweet. Pair with smoked fish, charcuterie, or roast pork with apples and sauerkraut. Serve lightly chilled.
We like honey in our herbal teas, so we thought why not put herbs in our honey wine? We love the combination! Ginger’s warming flavors have been recognized for years, especially in Asian cultures. Slight ginger burn balanced with sweet honey and a light floral nose. Excellent with sushi! Serve at room temperature or slightly chilled. Also, great warmed up in the winter!
We like honey in our herbal teas, so we thought why not put herbs in our honey wine? We love the combination! Chai spices of Cardamom, Ginger, and Cinnamon are reminiscent of a cup of exotic spiced tea with honey. Pair with tea biscuits, shortbread, or coffee cake. Serve lightly chilled or warmed.
