The Meads

“What is sweeter than honey, and what is stronger than a lion?”

Sunshine Daydream
Our flagship mead, Sunshine Daydream, is a refreshing alternative to beer or wine. Inspired by warm days in Coastal Virginia, this honey wine is a summer love in the spring, fall and winter. 

Naturally gluten-free, Sunshine Daydream is made from three essential ingredients: 100% North American clover honey, filtered water, and Reisling yeast. It has a bright and balanced flavor with a mellow honey character that is best enjoyed slightly chilled. Pair it with whatever makes you happy – we like it with nuts, grilled cheese, smoked meats, or something spicy.

Cherry Mead
All the goodness of Sunshine Daydream, with richness of tart Montmorency cherries right off the tree blended with a delicate honey taste.  This is dry wine that is perfect for a day at the beach, sunny afternoon picnic, or popcorn

Strawberry Mead
This sweet mead is ripe with the flavor of fresh strawberries picked on a warm summer day.  We like it chilled and paired with pound cake, vanilla ice cream, pie, or anything with chocolate in it.

Blackberry Mead
Melo Lion Blackberry Mead is semi-sweet, full of rich blackberry flavor with a light acid balance and a kiss of honey. This mead pairs well with cheese of all sorts, fruit cobblers, crisp salads, and (our favorite) PB&J.
