The Enlightenment was a philosophical movement that challenged traditionally held views and encouraged trial and error and first-hand experience over accepted wisdom. Thinkers refused to go along with inherited norms and conventions without personal experimentation.
The word “Enlightenment” reminds us that mead-making, and in fact, all winemaking, is an ancient art based in individuals using their senses to explore tastes for themselves and to decide what brings them pleasure. We don’t need authorization or permission from on high to know what we like, or even to learn how to make it. Winemaking is firstly an empirical practice of observing the natural world. It is a world of experimentation and curiosity. That is the world of Enlightenment Wines Meadery.
