Union, NJ – The first and only meadery in New Jersey is now distributing locally.
Melovino, in the Vauxhall section of Union, will offer their award-winning mead at stores across the area including in Westfield and Somerset.
The Westfield locations is Cool Vines at 127 Central Avenue – Phone (908) 232-5050.
“It’s exciting,” said Melovino owner Sergio Moutela to Patch. “For the first year and a half we were only selling in direct consumer sales and worked on educating people on what Mead is. Now we are branching out to put our mead on liquor store shelves and we are crossing our fingers and hoping it sells.”
Melovino doesn’t need much luck to sell their product.
Moutela just got back from the biggest mead competition in the world – the Mazer Cup International Mead Competition.
The medals this year were awarded to five different meads – three are brand new.
