Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is produced utilizing fresh honey without the addition of artificial flavorings, concentrates or artificial colorings. Even though greater production difficulties ensue because pure, raw honey is used for fermentation, the intensity of flavor generated through this technique is worth the effort.

Although this wine exhibits richness similar to a fine liqueur, this dessert-style beverage is not fortified and contains only 11% alcohol. Hence, this wine should be consumed shortly after purchase to enjoy its natural and rich honey flavor. The Mead can be enjoyed in one of two ways, either chilled or heated with spices to create a delicious wintry drink.

My Notes:

About Chaucer's:

CHAUCER’S CELLARS, at the BARGETTO WINERY, has produced award-winning dessert-style fruit wines since 1964. These elegant dessert wines are produced from 100% pure fruit or natural honey without the addition of artificial flavors. In 1964 Lawrence Bargetto began producing Mead using honey from a local family owned Walls Honey Farm and then continued with wines produced from different fruits in the area, including plums grown at the winery. Since then perhaps a dozen different fruits have been used, all locally grown.
