Heidrun Meadery, located in Point Reyes Station, is the first of its kind to make a fantastically delicious naturally sparkling honey wine, made in the traditional methode champenoise.
Unlike traditional mead, which is often overly sweet and thick, even syrupy, Heidrun's mead is light and crisp much like a sparkling wine made from grapes. Using single sourced honey for each of their varietals, which enables the wine to adopt the specific characteristics of the flowers those bees pollinated, Heidrun brings the honey back to a nectar without all of the sugar. You can check out their website for more detailed information on their process.
Speakeasy will be featuring their California Sage Blossom, which is an off-dry sparkling mead perfect for summer with light floral notes of jasmine and rich honey undertones.
In addition to being delicious and refreshing, we love Heidrun Mead because it is environmentally sustainable, actually helping to repopulate critical honey bee populations around the country. We're working to get this on our menu in the coming week!
