Summer Lea (2017 Silver, Drink Outside of the Grape Competition)– Mead with a hint of sweetness.  Made from honey from our hives and mountain well water.  Slight sweetness highlights floral aromas and flavors.  Small batches, available summer only.  Gluten-free.  $18


We limit our use of sulfites to those meads that require large amounts of raw fruits or finish with residual sugar, and we heat only when tradition or sanitation dictates, using a wood-fired kettle.  Summer Lea is unfiltered so you may discover some sediment or cloudiness in the bottle.  This is normal.  Some like the flavor of the sediment and others do not.  To avoid the sediment, let your mead settle and carefully pour it off of the sediment.
