There is a common misconception when people hear “have you tried Mead or Honey Wine”.  They think it’s syrupy sweet and tastes like honey.  This notion couldn’t be farther from the truth.  If you like or even better, love white wine, Grey Owl Meadery is going to surprise you.

Mead was reserved for royalty or the wealthy.  Mead making slowed down in Europe because of the arrival of cheaper alternative drinks. Mainly wine and beer and eventually spirits.

“A drink from the ages that is on point with food trends of today; clean, crisp and delicious.”
