Lakewood Vineyards to release mead in single-serving bottles

Lakewood Vineyards in Watkins Glen, Schuyler County, plans to release single-serving bottles of a mead that has long been a part of the Seneca Lake winery’s lineup.

Plans also are percolating to give the honeyed wine some international exposure.

Lakewood began making mead in 1997, after inking a production deal with Seifu Lessanework, a former butler to Haile Selassie, Ethiopia’s last emperor. Lessanework sells the beverage, labeled Seifu’s Tej, at the Ethiopian restaurants he now owns in Michigan.

Formulated to complement ginger, fenugreek and other spices found in Ethiopian cuisine, the wine appears headed to new heights as a result of Lessanework’s talks with Ethiopian Airlines to make it available for passengers.
