bees, mead and wine

I just got the following info from the Historic Pullman Garden Club:

We annually host a Winter Lecture Series, in the months of January, February and March (sometimes even April), on the 4th Sunday of each month. These lectures are free and open to the public. Light refreshments are served. Our first lecture of 2010 is this Sunday at the Hotel Florence in Pullman. We are pleased to present Greg Fischer of Wild Blossom Meadery and Winery.

Bees, Mead and Wine
a presentation by Greg Fischer of Wild Blossom Meadery and Winery

Lecture by Greg Fischer who grew up raising honeybees and making wine in New Paltz NY. Greg started to concentrate perfecting mead in 1989, which finally led to the development of Wild Blossom Meadery & Winery in 2000. Wild Blossom is producing world-class meads that are sold at retailers throughout Chicago and online in the US. Greg tends to his 80 hives on sunny days and days he is not in the winery or teaching classes or in the sky hang gliding. Greg also conducts wine & beer making classes at BevArt Brewer & Winemaker Supply and sells a full line of beer and wine making supplies at the same location.
See his NBC CHANNEL 5 Interview.

Hope you can join us!

I guess if you got the honey, you can make the mead. Has to be great when the honey is fresh and shipped locally. I'm going to try this stuff out.
