Superstition Meadery- is located in Prescott, Arizona. We make award winning meads (honey wines) and hard cider, with one or more certain to be agreeable to your palate. From a dry orange mead made with saffron, coriander and hops, to a sweet sparkling maple mead, we have something you will enjoy. We only use wildflower and mesquite honey varietals from Arizona, and our hard cider comes from the state's only cider press in Wilcox. We work hard to bring you the best craft mead and cider made naturally from Arizona's nectar and apples. With no cereal grains allowed even in a winery, our products are all gluten free and sulfites are only used in minimal amounts in Aphrodisia due to the grape base.
Arizona- is noted for its desert climate in its southern half, with very hot summers and quite mild winters. The northern half of the state features forests of pine, Douglas fir, and spruce trees, a very large, high plateau (the Colorado Plateau) and some mountain ranges—such as the San Francisco Mountains—as well as large, deep canyons, with much more moderate weather for three seasons of the year, plus significant snowfalls. There are ski resorts in the areas of Flagstaff and Alpine. In addition to the Grand Canyon National Park, there are several national forests, national parks, and national monuments. About one-quarter of the state is made up of Indian Reservations that serve as the home of a number of Native American tribes. For all this natural beauty Arizona is not typically thought of as an apple producing area, in fact only 8 apple orchards are nationally registered. However, cider is now making a stand in the great Southwest with Arizona's two commercial cider makers.

Headbanger Hard Cider- Our first Hard Cider reflects a 14 year experience making award winning wines. We started with all natural apple juice at 13 Brix inoculating the fermentation in 60 gallon French Oak Barrels. We used a yeast normally used for our Fume/Sauvignon Blanc. Fermentation took 15 days to become completely dry and the cider was racked to a clean barrels. Headbanger American Gold Whiskey was added to the cider and aged for another 30 days. The lots were carbonated, kegged, and bottled unfined and unfiltered.
