    The legend begins in Mentor Ohio when a boy is fascinated watching his uncle, a research chemist, transform juice into wine. The fascination becomes passion when he does his eighth grade science project on fermentation. Ken Schultz is on his way to becoming a winemaker! In 1975 he began making wine as a hobby, using the native varieties of grapes from the Great Lakes region where he lived. In 1979, Ken and his wife Lisa moved to Montana, where they lived in a tipi while they worked on their home. The lack of modern convenience did not deter Ken from his hobby and he continued to make wine and store it in the wine cellar beneath the tipi!  The lack of local, available grapes in western Montana however was discouraging. In 1989, a neighbor gave Ken a 5 gallon bucket of crystallized honey and he decided to try his hand at making mead, the most ancient of all fermented beverages.  The day after bottling the mead, Ken and his family moved to Papua New Guinea to develop a village level vocational training program. Arriving back in the USA, a long 7 years later, they all celebrated by trying the mead and it was heralded by all as Wonderful! Mead is an enchanting beverage that evokes thoughts of legend and lore, song and poetry and is enjoyed by people in all walks and stages of life.
