Will you bee-mine? Honey wine is considered to be the world's romantic wine. Campbell’s Gold in Abbotsford is an 8-acre farm operation with a country store and fully licensed honey winery.
Did you know? During medieval times, enough honey wine was gifted to newly-married couples to last for one full moon, to encourage fertility. This ritual created the word "honeymoon."
