Sweet Melomel Mead
“This sweet mead is made with whole elderberries that give it a nice rose' color. Like all of our meads, no sugar is added to sweeten the wine, only honey. While this is a sweet wine, it has a more delicate body than you would expect. It has a beautiful bouquet and flavors of strawberry pie. Elderberry mead pairs well with spinach salads, grilled chicken and fresh fruits, but can also go well with spicy Asian food. Try mixing it with soda for a wine spritzer. ”

”This can be served any time, chilled or not, in all occations to all types of wine drinkers. Its a wine that offends no one. ”
