Celebrate the Royal Wedding with Lyme Bay Winery

Can you believe it’s May already? The grim weather isn’t helping us get into the spirit of Spring much, but at least there’s a spot of pomp and sparkle in a couple of Saturdays’ time to look forward to.

So it’ll come as no surprise that even though we’ve been perfecting our award-winning meads for over 15 years, it was only a matter of time before our creative instincts fired up again and we started to think of new flavours to add to the range.

“Flavoured mead?” we hear you cry. Well yes. Made by fermenting honey, water and spices, our traditional meads are blended and aged on site to create deliciously rich and moreish tipples that are ta...
