Bee D’Vine

bee d'vineAyele Solomon hopes the Sharks like Bee D’Vine, his honey wine business, in Shark Tank episode 1204. Bee D’Vine is honey wine or mead – the oldest beverage besides water in the world. It’s still popular in Solomon’s native Ethiopia and he hopes to turn the rest of the world on to his product. This particular honey wine doesn’t have the sweetness of mead or the tannins of traditional wine.

There are two ingredients: raw honey and spring water. He ages the mixture in a barrel for 15 months, then for two more years in the bottle. This produces an end product that has “a layered bouquet of almond, honey suckle and jasmine.”

Bee D’Vine is very eco friendly too. It doesn’t require acres of vineyards, irrigation or all the other trappings of a traditional vineyard. Solomon’s long term goal is to source wild honey from jungles all over the world, creating jobs and a viable reason for conservation. The winery is located in the Napa Valley and they opened a wine tasting room in The Ferry Building in San Francisco in December, 2019. The Ferry Building hosts a Farmer’s Market several days a week.

A 750 ml bottle costs $49 and a 350 ml costs $29. There are also limited edition wines that sell for $349 for a 3 liter bottle. For now, they make their wines in small batches. Solomon is hoping the wine drinking public will embrace his product. He hopes a Shark will help him spread the word.
