The clover-filled plains and meadows of the Black Hills are beautiful to view in the spring and summer. The ample sweet clover growing there plays a vital role for a very important inhabitant of the area—the honey bee. Bees love the abundance of pollen and nectar in clover. The honey created after pollinating these plants is a beautiful golden hue with perfect flavor.
The hybrid grape Prairie Star was sweetened with this clover honey, accentuating the natural flavors of the grape while highlighting the characteristics of the honey. This extraordinary pairing during the wine making process creates a truly unique Midwestern wine to pair with salty meats and robust cheeses.
