Welcome to Lindisfarne Mead

St Aidan's Winery is the home of the world famous Lindisfarne Mead and Lindisfarne Preserves.

Lindisfarne Mead is a unique alcoholic fortified wine manufactured here on the Holy Island of Lindisfarne. The honey which is used in the production of Lindisfarne Mead is drawn from the four corners of the world and here, on the island, it is vatted with fermented grape juice, honey, herbs, and the pure natural water of an artesian well and fortified with fine spirits to produce this unique drink.

World famous Lindisfarne Mead is not only the connoisseur's choice but makes a supreme drink for young and old alike whatever the season. To many, it is regarded as the "nectar of the gods"

The Winery Showroom opens to visitors for free sampling daily (Adults / Over 18's Only) throughout the season. Stocking speciality foods and drinks available at the winery or online including:

Lindisfarne Craft Shop is also on the premises and specialises in stocking hand thrown and crafted Northumbrian Pottery. The Craft Shop also stocks a very extensive range of Celtic jewellery, Celtic throws, glass ware and pewter.

The word "honeymoon" is derived from the ancient Norse custom of having Newly-Weds drink Mead for a whole moon which was thought to increase their fertility and therefore their chances of a happy and fulfilled marriage.
