Owner, Melovino Meadery
Owner of Melovino Meadery, Sergio Moutela, has become a notable award-winning commercial mead maker. After overcoming some legal obstacles in New Jersey that prevented meaderies from operating in state, he not only became the first meadery in New Jersey, but was also the driving force behind opening the doors for others to open meaderies as well through the creation of new legislation.
He openly shares his passion and knowledge with others in the pursuit of making better mead. He is the author of Mead Made Right and the TOSNA method of advanced nutrient additions in mead making, and now owns and operates one of the fastest growing meaderies in the country.
