DIFRANCESCO MEADERY

DIFRANCESCO MEADERY

We take pride in creating the highest quality and best tasting mead. Also called honey wine, mead is distinct in that it uses honey as opposed to fruit juice as a primary source of sugar during fermentation. Mead can be prepared with a great range of sweetness - from very dry, to that of a dessert wine. Alcohol content also varies and can be comparable to anything from a session style beer or to a fortified port wine.

We produce in small batches using natural ingredients and prefer to focus on quality rather than quantity. We offer meads that are sparkling and served on tap like a beer, and we also offer "still mead" that is served like a table wine has similar characteristics. Visit our Mead Menu for a list of our most recent selection.

Our meadery is located in the hills overlooking the Susquehanna River in Lower Windsor Township. The area features scenic hills, historic farmland, and a vibrant art and music scene. Our Tasting Room offers a beautiful view across an 18th century farm to the river. Come join us to enjoy a glass of mead and take the opportunity to sample our newest recipes!

We are also grateful to be featured at several locations around York and Lancaster Counties. Visit the Where to Find Us page and stop by one of our valued retailers to enjoy a glass of mead with casual dining, live music or along with other craft beverages.

MEAD MENU

Mead is a beverage of great variety, and as such, it has a long list of names for the various traditional recipes. Typically, wine is made from fruit, and mead is made from honey. When we make wine using honey and fruit, we are compelled to call it a honey wine or "melomel". Melomels can be made with any fruit, but if we use apple, then we like to call it "cyser". Adding spices, you create a "metheglin", and the list goes on.

Our meads are typically made using fruit, nuts, spices, and of course honey. Honey itself is gluten free, and currently none of our recipes contain gluten.

Our still meads contain no preservatives or added sulfites. Our sparkling meads, because of the lower alcohol content, require potassium sorbate to inhibit re-fermentation.

Below are the meads we currently have available. This can change rapidly so if you are looking for something specific, it's best to check with us.
