Persimmon Mead

About Persimmon
  • Hand Picked

    Our persimmons are hand picked in central Illinois, pitted and driven to East Grove Farms.

  • Challenge

    Persimmon wines are very difficult to get right, the pulp is hard to work with and the fruit is very ripe when it is picked.

  • Learn More Persimmons are a very interesting fruit and are described on the Wikipedia page.

Semi-Sweet Melomel Mead
“Like many other East Grove wines, this is unlike anything you have tried before. It starts with tropical fruit flavors but as it sits on your pallete, it will develop hazelnut flavors. It is an exciting semi-dry wine to drink.”

“This is a tough wine to get right, but worth it.”
