Breakwater Vineyards, in Owl's Head Maine, grows grapes and keeps bees on the property. This mead is made from their own midcoast honey and it is beautifully crafted. It has a nice backbone of appley acidity and just enough round sweetness to keep everything in delicate balance. Steam up some fresh Maine lobster and serve it with a chilled bottle of Bee's Knees and you'll think you've died and gone to heaven.
