Dragon's Lair Country Wines & Meads
Dragon’s Lair is a Craft Winery specializing in Country Wines and Meads. All our wines and meads are made from 100% Washington State fruits, berries and honey. From the mild, wet climate of the Puget Sound to the hot, arid regions of the Columbia Valley, Washington produces some of the best fruits and berries in the world, both cultivated and wild. Whether it be cranberry, buckwheat, blackberry or wildflower, we choose our honey for its bold flavor and gentle sweetness. The ancient Celts never made Mead this good.
The Pacific Northwest, Washington State in particular, has the most diverse selection of fruit crops and berries anywhere. We are the #1 producer of Apples, Red Raspberries, Concord and Niagra grapes and Sweet Cherries in the US and #2 in all grape varieties combined (USDA Statistics). See our page on Ag Statistics.
Our wines are bold in flavor yet gentle on the pallet. From our Semisweet Apple wine to our Elderberry Port, everything has met with high praise from those who have tried it. Unlike a lot of other fruit wine makers we do not blend with grapes. Our wines are 100% fruits and berries.
We have been experimenting with several Meads. Some from ancient recipes, others using modern methods. We are developing a line of Meads to satisfy the most discriminating tastes from Knights of the SCA to Knights of the Board Room.
Making wine and mead is both an art and a science cloaked in a vail
of magic and it is our passion. It is also our intent and aspiration to have our Country Wines and Meads achieve the quality and esteem of the finest wines produced in Washington.
