Honey and Mead Tasting in the Hunter Valley

Welcome to Honey Wines Australia! Our tastings are designed to help you discover and appreciate the unique flavours of our meads.

Bookings can be made via the calendar below. At request we can sometimes open on days we are normally closed, on these special occasions, there is a minimum spend of $100.

You’ll learn about mead, which is wine made from honey instead of grapes and it is the oldest fermented drink in the world. This tasting location is at our small shop attached to our house in Broke.

On the scorecards provided, you will select six mead flavours and hand it back to your host. Then your samples will be prepared on a paddle board in shot glasses.

Current mead flavours in stock include:

  • Traditional (Plain) Mead
  • Turkish Delight
  • Lemon and Ginger
  • Vanilla
  • Apple
  • Cherry & Coconut
  • Maple Syrup
  • Orange and Grapefruit
  • Mana Potion (mixed fruits)
  • Stamina Potion
  • Regen Potion
  • Health Potion

Following the mead tasting, you will taste a few local honey varieties including raw honey, vanilla bean honey, creamed honey and chilli honey sauce. 6 x honey-tasting paddle pop sticks are allocated per tasting purchased.

You will also have the opportunity to buy from our range at the end if you wish.

The experience usually goes for about 45 minutes or longer if larger groups.

Please note: Although we prioritise service to booked visitors, the shop can have walk-ins.

1 x tasting paddle board = $20

2 or more tasting paddle boards, $15 each
