4-13-21 Tonight we’re chatting with Pierre Rodrigue, a prolific wine and meadmaker living in Alberta, Canada.

Pierre has been fermenting wine since 1985. His early batches consisted of kits, and fruits and berries. As there weren’t a lot of publications then and zero internet, he learned a lot by trial and error.

Pierre began mead making in the fall of 2016, and has won several medals and Best of Show at Canada’s Mellarius Cup. His penchant for all juice meads is fairly well known on social media, where he moderates GotMead, Modern Mead Makers, Home Made Wine Making, and his own page, The Modern Art of Wine and Mead.

In his spare time you can find him drawing, baking, cooking, curing and smoking meats, or long distance target shooting.
