Stopped in during our annual trip to the agricultural lands of Western Colorado because my wife loves mead. I was a skeptic, as I've only had the sweet version of mead and am partial to dry wines. The Meadery pleasantly upended my previous notions of what mead can be.
They had approximately 20 meads to choose from, ranging from dry to fruity to sweet dessert wines. My wife started with the sweet mead and I started with the driest, and was pleased to find it more on the range of a chardonnay. I also found I really enjoyed the peach n honey mead, which had the delicious taste of a fresh Colorado peach. The first five tastes were free, and between my wife and I we easily narrowed down the meads we could agree on to bring home.
I wish we would have thought to ask how meads were made, and in retrospective I'm surprised we weren't offered any kind of a backstory. Not necessary to our enjoyment, but given the uniqueness of meads in the beverage world I would have thought this was part of the standard conversation. The woman who guided us in our tasting was very friendly and conversational, and we had an excellent time on a lazy Sunday afternoon.
