1-14-2020 Tonight at 9PM EST we’re kicking off our featuring of speakers at MeadCon, and opening with Sergio Moutela, owner of Melovino Meadery and the president of the AMMA.

Sergio opened Melovino just over 5 years ago, and during that time he’s learned a ton about operating a meadery, making better mead and what people like in a mead. He’s wrangled with his state to allow meaderies to even exist, and juggled the need for space to expand with the reality of how hard it can be to find an ideal location for the meadery.

He’s also been very active in working on growing the AMMA and what it can do to help the mead community, both home and professional.

Sergio is speaking at MeadCon 2020 (get your tickets, hotel and see the schedule there!), his talk is ‘What I’ve Learned in Five Years’. We’re going to delve into various issues with running a meadery, tease you on some of what he’ll be talking about, and dig into some of the other things facing a meadmaker going pro.

We’ll also be talking about his collaborations, one of with is with yours truly, and exploring different mead styles. And we’ll likely talk pyments as well, Sergio loves them!
