Where we delight in providing the highest quality and best tasting mead. Sometimes referred to as ‘honey wine’, mead is distinct in that it uses honey as opposed to fruit juice as a primary source of sugar during fermentation. Mead has the ability to be prepared with a great range of sweetness- from very dry, to that of an aperitif. Alcohol content also varies and can compare to a session style beer or to a fortified port wine.
Thanks to the combination of our friends, our fans and the rapidly growing popularity of mead, what began as a modest passion has developed very quickly into a humble, small batch operation. Staying true to our roots, we prefer to focus on quality rather than quantity. Many of our recipes require time to reach prime maturity before being tabled, and as a result, our selection is currently limited.
Visit our Where to Find Us page and stop by one of our valued retailers so you can experience a glass of DiFrancesco Mead for yourself.
We are pleased to announce that starting Monday, August 19, the tasting room at DiFrancesco Meadery will be open to the public. (check below for updated hours). Bottles and growler fills will be available for purchase and we invite you to enjoy a glass of our mead and take in the beautiful view from our porch. We will also intermittently be offering selections of wine, beer, hand-crafted liqueurs and refreshing sangrias made from mead.
