Bottling Bumble Bee Red Wine Today
Our Bumble Bee Red Wine from our Maple River Winery is one of a kind. We wanted to incorporate wild North Dakota grapes into a wine but couldn't find the right combination. We tried blending North Dakota honey and came up with a wonderful sweet red wine. North Dakota usually ranks #1 in honey production in the United States. Our honey that we use in our various honey wines is definitely considered local. The honey is extracted about a mile from our winery. The beekeeper has hives throughout our area...about a 40 mile radius. This wonderful partnership has provided many pounds of honey going into many bottles of wine. Whether it is our Bumble Bee Red Wine, Honeycomb Plum Wine, or our Honey Apple Wine, there is always one open in our refrigerator at home.
