goblets of mead (honey wine) and wishing them
virility and fertility for the length of one full moon
after the wedding. This delicious, popular mead has
a cult-like following worldwide – and seriously,
what’s not to love? Serve chilled as an aperitif or as
a dessert wine with fresh fruit or honey cake.
