A wild cherry that grows prolifically throughout Montana, the Chokecherry got its name because it doesn't sweeten until after a frost. Montanans have used it for years to make their favorite syrup and jelly. This tradition, inspired our winemaker to marry this familiar flavor with local honey, and create a true Montana wine and the winner of our first gold medal. Serve slightly chilled.

Berry sweet with a nice acidity Blackberry Honeywine has an exquisite flavor. Blackberry Honeywine is Kosher without sulfites or preservatives added! Since we use no sulfites in producing our wine, we do not agitate our wine to remove co2 produced in fermentation and chilling, giving the wine a slight spritz. Great served paired or over ice before or after dinner.
On a whim, we blended honey wine with peach - magic happened. Turns out we created an exceptionally mellow mead wine, with an easy-to-enjoy, forward fruit taste. But perhaps it's not surprising, since we use pure, rich, Montana honey wine and sweet delicate peach juice. This unique Northern Rockies honey wine speaks with a subtle Southern drawl.
Honey and Maple, Bees and Trees. Nature simply meant some things to go together. Thatâ€™s why weâ€™ve blended 100% pure maple syrup with thick, smooth Montana honey. The result is a dark, enchanting flavor, with distinctive maple flourishes in the finish. Enjoy Hidden Legend Maple Mead by itself or experiment with meals.
