11-9-21 Tonight we’re headed to Texas to talk with Wendy Rohan and Rosie Haines at Rohan Wines and Meads in La Grange, situated between La Grange, Round Top and Fayetteville in south central Texas.

Rohan Meadery is at Blissful Folly Farm. The farm is home to Rohan Wines and Meads, Blissful Folly hard ciders and La Grange Brewing Co.

All the beer, wine, mead & cider is made on site and served at the tap room on the farm. Wendy & John Rohan started with the meadery first in 2009, then slowly built the business and added different items over the last 12 years. The farm is a working farm with guinea fowl, chickens, ducks, a 2 acre vineyard, fruit trees, bees, goats, sheep & donkeys. The couple practices sustainable farming methods, and the farm is bee friendly certified.
Wendy & John were avid homebrewers in the 90s and both have background in the sciences. They make their meads on the principle that the freshest ingredients, locally- sourced when possible, will have the best end result. To that end, over 90% of the honey used in their meads is Texas wildflower or huajilla honey & much of the fruit used is organic.
Rosie Hanes came on board as production manager and mead maker in the summer of 2020. She brings a wealth of homebrewing experience, and creative ideas that have resulted in some unique and amazing offerings this past year.
Rohan Meadery makes over 15 styles of meads; some are seasonal, others available year-round.
