Have you ever gone mead tasting?

Last weekend, my family and I went to Point Reyes for mead tasting at Heidrun Meadery. It was such a pretty place. The tasting room is inside a greenhouse with heat lamps overhead to keep you warm.

I’ve never had mead before so I was excited to try it at the meadery. So many people have been asking what mead is. Basically, mead is made of three ingredients: honey, yeast, and water. The different flavors of mead derives from the different honey used. Honey varies depending on the flowers that bees pollinate. Some are sweet while others are a little bit more herby and earthy. My favorite was the California Orange Blossom.

If you want, you can pack a picnic lunch and dine outside at their picnic tables for a cost. Or if you like to wander around, there are fields of wildflower seedlings that you can walk through on marked paths. If you get the chance to visit Point Reyes, I highly recommend making a quick stop at Heidrun Meadery.

    I had some New Zealand ‘honey wine’ made from Manuka honey on the weekend. I’m guessing honey wine and mead are pretty much the same thing. I wasn’t really a fan. I think I expected it to be more like a dessert wine, but this was more watery than I wanted it to be. Interesting to try though!
