The story

Beekeeping Oder has been focusing exclusively on the production of classic and sparkling mead.
They began to produce the mead in the 1990s, but only commercially after 2000. In 2005, they began to experiment with the production of sparkling mead - the classical method of secondary fermentation in the bottle.
Making sparkling mead is a longtime process that requires 5-10 years.
Franc Oder has the widest range of "mead champagne" in Slovenia and you can choose from 4 types:
  • Carnica - Dry from honey
  • Nectar - semi-sweet of blossom honey
  • Mana - semi-sweet of honey
  • Anna - the sweetest of mixed honey
All are based on very long aged meads.
