Purchased two bottles of wine from the local liquor store in Moab. One was black currant and the other was raspberry peach. Both of these were the worst wines we have ever tasted. The black currant was completely undrinkable. Poured two small glasses, took one drink, immediately poured out the entire bottle. While not a horrible taste, raspberry peach smelled awful, which made it less than palatable and after writing this will also be poured out. For $34 for two bottles of wine, trying to support local business, I am very disappointed that this was so bad.

I actually went twice in the week I was in the area. The first was with a fellow worker that had never had Mead before and now he was a believer. We both purchased product this time. Both visits were very late in the day, very close to closing, and at either time I never felt rushed, which is a rarely the case. Everyone I came into contact there is very knowledgeable, friendly, and patient with me. I gained a GREAT deal of knowledge. I was in the area for work, but plan to return again from Little Rock at my expense, it is that good. My fellow worker wanted to return again with me but he had to start heading back to California but he to will return again as well. This is a must visit if your in the area at a minimum but it's worth a trip by itself. I purchased 2 1st trip and 4 the second time. I would have purchased more but I was flying back the next day. I could go on forever of how impressed I was but I probably went to long already. YOU NEED TO COME HERE, ITS GREAT.

As a cider lover, had to check it out. It is a small establishment but ok. We had a tasting, bought a few items and that was it. The gal that helped us was informational and helpful.

Fun couple activity to visit. There are so many varieties to try. A guest can sample up to five wines at a minimal charge. Guest can add a snack or premium chocolate to their experience. Many bottles are chilled and ready for purchase. If you need glasses or other supplies, they are available too.

As wine lovers, as soon as we heard about The Hive Winery we knew we had to check it out. It is one of just nine wineries that operate in the mostly dry state of Utah. My visit here was unusual to say the least. The winery is located in a tucked away industrial type shopping center. It's not fancy and is a small little warehouse type room. There's a gift shop that sells local honey and other junky stuff, and the tasting room is a small counter. We were gruffly greeted by a rude woman who, during our entire visit, seemed annoyed that we were there. She obviously didn't want to be working or hosting a wine tasting, and she soured the whole experience. The wines, which were all, in my opinion, totally undrinkable, took care of the rest. The Hive specializes in non-grape fruit wines, honey wine (Mead), and hard apple ciders. We sampled them all for a $5 per person tasting fee of 5 tiny samples each. By the time I got to the second sample, I was ready to tap out. These wines were AWFUL -- not an acquired taste, not "different," but downright AWFUL. I pity the consumer who drinks these wines and actually finds them tasty. I am not trying to sound like the admitted wine snob that I am, but wow. Some of the wines were sickly sweet and most tasted like cough medicine. Among the stomach-churning varietals were black currant wine, dry oaked peach wine, cranberry wine, raspberry pineapple wine, blueberry wine, strawberry wine, and the particularly revolting rhubarb wine (one that I wouldn't even serve to my gravest enemy). Even more insulting than the hateful woman working the tasting bar were the prices of the wines, which ranged from $15 - $25 per bottle. You can buy a decent Cabernet from a real wine growing region like Lodi or Sonoma for that price point. I wanted to support a cool local business but just because it's local doesn't mean it's good. This place gets a big, resounding "bleh."
