Admission grants guests entrance to the Texas Mead Fest on September 22 from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., where they can enjoy honey tastings, live music, and a variety of family-friendly activities.
Texas Mead Fest
Texas Mead Fest highlights the honey-brews of three local producers: Enchanted Manor Winery, Rohan Meadery, and Dancing Bee Winery. When Enchanted Manor Winery's chief mead-maker prepares his brew, he follows a recipe from a 17th-century cookbook from the court of King Charles I. Rohan Meadery's producers also call upon historical references, such as Bacchus's dream journal, as they re-create mankind's oldest fermented beverage in small, handcrafted batches. At Dancing Bee Winery, mead producers focus on creating a diverse spectrum of flavors.
Texas Mead Fest
When Enchanted Manor Winery's chief mead-maker handcrafts his honey brew, he follows a recipe from a 17th-century cookbook from the court of King Charles I. These medieval techniques inspire the winery's special mead for the annual Texas Renaissance Festival, which is brewed from Texas wildflower honey and sipped from knightly knee cops. Enchanted Manor also whips up modern meads flavored with orange blossom and oak, mixed with pear wine, or brewed from the honey of the guajillo flower.
In addition to its signature meads, Enchanted Manor Winery whips up small batches of wines from grapes, peaches, and other fruits, and augments their stock with bottles from nearby wineries. Enchanted Manor also hosts special events such as sangria nights, mead tastings, and wine classes.
