Groton - Artesano Mead

1334 Scott Hwy

Open: Summer

Mead, or wine made from honey, is mankind's oldest fermented beverage. If you've never had a glass of mead before, you're in for a pleasant experience. Mead is available from dry to sweet and in many different flavors, all depending on the vintner's imagination. Our goal is to provide a fresh, well balanced and enjoyable glass of wine that accentuates the floral character of the honey with a hint of underlying sweetness.

The collection of honey from a wild hive almost certainly predates the cultivation of grapes or grains. It's not hard to imagine our early ancestors discovering the entrance to a beehive in some ancient tree and becoming curious about the determination and speed which the workers sallied forth. Our innate drive to know more would have led us to the honey, the golden reward of the bees' labor. Stored in open containers, or perhaps mixed with water to extend its bounty, the honey would naturally ferment and give its drinker internal warmth and a sense of well being.

Had an awesome mead tasting! Great products and staff. Definitely worth stopping by. (Bottles of mead were expensive yet reasonable. The sampling was well worth it.)

I stopped by the quaint little shop during my When 1+1=1 US/Canada Book Tour in 2012 and I still remember it fondly. The owner told me her beautiful story of accidentally stumbling onto something delicious and the guts to create a channel to share these amazing wines with others. Local and lovingly-made. Definitely recommendable!

Wonderful and highly recommended. The staff was knowledgeable and very helpful and the tasting was great,... although after 4 tastes, I admit, I was a bit loopy. Luckily my partner only tasted 2 meads. We enjoyed a tour of the facility, which is small, but I found it very interesting. The owner/founder was there to answer questions and talk about the background. Very nice visit!
