Book Cover

The qualities of honey wine inspired the cover art for the book. The three simple triangles evoke an ancient crown in a mosaic and provide a universal, antique, and mythological look. This expression is balanced with a modern wine glass replete with the recurring triangle motif.

Book Illustrations

Fifty custom illustrations help to tell our honey wine story. Take, for example, the chapter entitled "No Tannins," where one almost feels the puckering sensation of grape wine coating the tongue and pallet (as the woman dreams of no-tannin honey wine).

Want prints? Write us and tell which are your favorites. The original framed artwork will occasionally be on display at special Bee d'Vine tasting events.
