Overview

As Colorado's first and most bee-loved meadery, Meadery of the Rockies makes an array of honey based wines. We start with pure, raw orange blossom honey, then ferment it. We also craft fruit wine and honey wine blends. They're blends of mead and fruit wines such as blackberry, strawberry and peach. We also carry fortified dessert wines. Mead is one of the oldest alcoholic drinks known to man and has a rich and interesting history. Stop by our tasting room in the heart of Palisade, CO to learn more and have complementary tastes of our mead.

Our group did a little wine tasting in Palisade, and decided to try some honey wine at the Meadery. Nice tasting room, friendly staff, and tasty offerings.

I did my Christmas shopping in July! At this well appointed gift shop and tasting room, I found the cutest bee-oriented merchandise. I browsed and shopped while tasting some very flavorful honey wines. Blackberry Honey Wine is my favorite!
