Heidrun Meadery makes any date great
If summer love is in the air and the idea of spending an entire day laying on a blanket with a beau or a belle and a picnic basket for two sounds appealing, then look no further than Marin’s own Heidrun Meadery.
The sprawling farmscape of this charming meadery is already, in and of itself, a romantic spot for a rendezvous. After all, it’s difficult not to feel at least a little bit smitten when surrounded by pastoral floral meadows, peacefully buzzing bees and endless effervescent flutes of bubbly mead.
But Point Reyes Station’s true romance mecca is not necessarily found in an all-day date at the meadery—though it could be. Rather, the most untapped romantic resource in Marin County can be found at the bottom of a Heidrun Meadery picnic basket.
Oftentimes, the hardest part of organizing a romantic picnic is, well, figuring out what exactly adds up to a romantic picnic. And it’s not as though putting a frisbee and a couple of energy drinks with some saltines into a basket will woo anyone, or at least not the more discerning dames and dudes. But at Heidrun Meadery, the hard work of assembling an ultra-romantic basket is as easy as cake … which is, funny enough, the only picnic item not available at Heidrun.
Each basket contains a little bit of honey for one’s honey, a petite vase for flowers, a well-made picnic blanket to last a lifetime, savory bites, beeswax candles, blank cards and, of course, a bottle of mead to share and savor with that special someone.
Heidrun Meadery is located at 11925 State Route 1 in Point Reyes Station and is open daily from 11am to 5pm. For more information or to inquire about picnic baskets, call 415.663.9122 or visit the website at heidrunmeadery.com.
