Red Scare Oak

Wild Blueberries, Wild Blackberries, and Wild Elderberries, Hermit Woods Winery

Wild Blueberries, Wild Blackberries, and Wild Elderberries, Hermit Woods Winery

This is a unique wine: a multiberry melomel comprised of blueberry, blackberry, elderberry, and honey wines in proportions to provide balance, structure, and long-deep flavors.  The original batches were made entirely from fruit and honey from Ken the winemaker’s land and this year that has been expanded to include Chuck’s blackberries, elderberries from John and Ollie’s home in nearby Meredith, and the three-honey wine.  All the fruit and honey used in this wine was picked and processed by hand with focused attention to obtain the best flavors.  For added tannins, the wine is aged in a small French Oak Barrel.

Extracting Honey

This intense, dry wine holds up well with many foods and is very enjoyable on its own.  I enjoy it most slightly chilled.  It can be consumed now but will age very well … my first batch from 2008 is still getting better. This is named for my son’s ultimate frisbee team and the intense red color of the wine and…  - enjoy.
