Two Bees Wine

Monday, September 18, 2006

So why the name Two Bees for our wine? Grapes require little to no pollination from bees; wind does the job. And usually it's the greedy yellow jackets rather than the gentle, well-meaning bees that show up during harvest time, attracted by the sweet scent of mass quantities of sticky, juicy grapes.

We sing the praises of bees nonetheless:

They symbolize productivity, cooperation, organization.

They've been associated with gods and royalty since the ancient Egyptians.

They fly with purpose, take time to smell the flowers, create buzz.

Working together, bees transform one natural product into another, resulting in something wonderfully delicious and complex that others gather and enjoy. Likewise, we Two Bees hope to make a honey of a wine!
