Meanderings and Mead

Oh, Savannah.

Sometimes a vintner needs to take a break to stop and smell the live oaks. Destination weddings offer the perfect opportunity to try new things, such as local Georgia wine..

And mead from the “everything honey” store.. Because when you are a winemaker you develop a knack for finding wine in the most unlikely places.

For those of you who aren’t aware, mead is wine made from honey; and done correctly, is absolutely delicious. This particular tasting demonstrated meads that were all predominantly light-bodied but ranged from dry to sweet, and all glorious on the palate. A few of these were the basic honey and water fermentation with various fruits mixed in with rewarding results.

Of course, there was time for copious amounts of toasting to wedded bliss….

Some romantic strolls down the river walk…

And who says regulators and the regulated can’t live in harmony?

Until next time, Savannah.

    I used to get tired of drinking iced tea, so I’d ask my wife if we had some lemonade, and I would just dump it right in there.
