We have one thing on our mind when we travel: where’s the wine? Okay, maybe our trips are about more than that. But we do look around to see what’s happening with wine wherever we are. So it’s little surprise that we were tasting wine and mead in Savannah, GA.
Have you ever been to Savannah? If you have, you’ve probably explored the historic River Street. The Savannah Bee Company has a store right there along the river. It’s a lovely place to stop in and take a break from the humidity, as well as try some of their honey products.
And one of their premier products is mead!
We had a lovely time tasting wine and mead, as well as the other honey available in the store. It’s a nice break from your shopping or as an after-meal treat. And the employees were very enthusiastic about bees, honey, mead, and other bee products.
It’s no wonder bees do well in Savannah. There were flowers, trees and shrubs everywhere, as well as ideal weather. As a result, the bees have plenty of food to choose from! It’s great that someone decided to make mead from the local honey. As more people discover the wonders of mead, there’ll be more action to help preserve bee habitats.
The next time you’re in Savannah, be sure to go to the Savannah Bee Company. Enjoy tasting wine and mead as you wander the historic city.

We always enjoy our trips to the WineMaker Magazine Conference. This year, with the home winemaking conference in Santa Rosa, CA, we were excited to have a chance to explore more of California’s wine country. It was our first trip to the area. (Can you believe it?) We took a few extra days and spent some time in Napa, Suisun Valley, Lodi, and Sonoma. Of course, it wasn’t long enough to fully enjoy the area, but we did our best!
Wine Tasting in California
1992 & 2012 Cabs at Clos Duval Winery
As hobby winemakers, our main goal is making wines we love to drink. But we also just entered some of our homemade wine in competition at the WineMaker International Amateur Wine Competition.
Why would we want to go to the time and expense of entering a wine competition? There are a few reasons to consider it: Continue reading
We live in south Florida. It’s not exactly an area known for its local wine. We can pick all kinds of tropical fruits right out our front door, but vinifera grapes don’t grow this far south.
We’ve realized that doesn’t really matter, though. You can still get good local wine here.
We try to support local businesses when we can, and we love to go wine tasting. So recently we hit the road and set out on the Florida Wine Trail near St. Petersburg.
Okay, it’s not exactly an organized trail… But as you can see from this Florida Grape Growers Association map, Continue reading

We had a wonderful time this year at WineMaker Magazine’s annual 2015 home winemaking conference. This May we traveled to Portland, OR, and got to experience the wonders of Willamette Valley.
As usual, the wine was exquisite, and we learned so many things. Not the least of which was how to properly pronounce Willamette … “It’s Will-AM-it, dammit!” Continue reading

Rapid Ice Cooler Sleeve
Mrs. Noontime got me one of these a couple of years ago, and I use it all the time! It’s simple, just store the sleeve in the freezer and pull it out when you need it. It’s perfect for keeping a chilled white wine cool while you savor it. It also helps quick chill wine when you want to pop open a bottle but forgot to stash it in the fridge to chill first. This is the sleeve I have and there are several other options available at Amazon.com.
