Wild Blossom Meadey Greening The Earth With Honeywine
Wild Blossom Meadery & Winery was founded to produce the finest honey wines (Meads) in the Midwest. We are Chicago's first winery and Illinois' only meadery on the Northern Illinois Wine Trail. We are especially proud to utilize local honeys and fruits in both traditional and contemporary styles of meads. Our honey bees collect nectar from the prairies of Illinois and the sand dunes of Lake Michigan. We also have select locations in the City of Chicago where industry has left and nature has reclaimed vacant lots and parking areas with wild flowers. Our honeybees forage these areas in addition to the beautiful gardens that typify our city. Mead is the most sustainable wine on Earth. In the production of just one bottle of mead, honey bees pollinate more than 2,000,000 flowers that may turn in to more than 20,000,000 seeds that can add more green to the earth.

Products from patterns designed by ancient Earth.
Wild Stones was founded as part of an artistic project to document the world's oldest rock and mineral sites. We were deeply affected by the power and beauty of these ancient sites, some dating back 4 billion years, and by the stones' striking, sinuous patterns, which we captured in our photographs. In partnership with Holy Cow Company, we have transferred our images to fabrics to create the Wrapped in Earth clothing line. We want to share with others the feeling of being nurtured and protected by ancient Earth, especially during these turbulent times. We also offer print products, including a book project, Echoes of Earth, to be published as a limited first edition. Our future plans include a line of children's clothing as well as linens, wall hangings, and other products. A portion of each sale goes toward supporting efforts to preserve and protect these ancient sites from mining and commercial exploitation.
