This wine is more like a grape wine than HoneyRun's other varieties, and is on the sweet side. It has been referred to as "instant port" by numerous tasters. Our winemaker enjoys Elderberry Honeywine with chicken, tangy salads, and by itself.

This elderberry honey wine is more like grape wine than Honey Run’s other varieties, and is on the sweet side. It has been referred to as ”instant port” by numerous tasters. Our winemaker enjoys Elderberry Honeywine by itself, or with a splash of blackberry grappa (brandy could be substituted).
Elderberry Honeywine retains its fruity flavor for up to a year, or longer if kept cool. We have tasted bottles kept under the stairs for six years, and they were delicious, but even more like a blackberry port. Serve chilled.
|Honey Run Winery’s focus has always been three-fold:
1) Make tasty, accessible wine from fruit and honey.
2) Make natural wine without sulfites, sorbates, or preservatives.
3) Share it near and far with friends, family, and fans.
HoneyRun Winery was founded by John and Amy Hasle in 1992. From the beginning, Honey Run has made wonderful-tasting, fruit honey wine without added sulfites or preservatives. The family business began at the Hasle home in a small canyon of the Sierra Nevada foothills near Chico, CA. Just down the road is the historic Honey Run Covered Bridge that appears on our wine labels and corks. The winery has been in Southern Chico since 1995, and we love visitors!
While happy customers now enjoy HoneyRun Honey Wines across the country, we stay close to our roots. Our natural honey comes from local Northern California beekeepers, and every bottle of HoneyRun Honey Wine is filled carefully by hand. You can always find our honey wine at the annual Taste of Chico, and on local shelves. Over the years our corks have featured the bicycles, bees, and large oak trees commonly found in Chico. We invite you to open a bottle and enjoy them with us.
