St. Patrick's Day has become the new holiday for romantic getaways thanks to an ancient Irish ritual. Tradition explains that after being married, newlywed couples would be sent somewhere secluded together, with a supply of Mead, a potent fermented honey wine mixed with herbs, and thought to promote fertility. Honeymoon came to refer to the period, often 30 days or one moon cycle, in which the new couple would get to know each other by imbibing the romance inducing beverage provided by their families. St. Patrick's Day is the best time to spend a romantic weekend getting to know someone special, and many Inns and Bed and Breakfast run specials that make reenacting this ancient rite with a modern twist a new reason to getaway.

For the authentic Mead experience in the United States, spend some time at the Springhill Winery and Bed and Breakfast in Bloomfield, Kentucky. Here you can sample homemade Harvest Mead, as well of other varieties of vino which are created at the onsite winery.

The Springhill Winery has this to say about the mead they create, 'This traditional Celtic wine is said to be "Man's oldest drink" and gives life, wisdom, courage, strength and fertility. Springhill's Honey Mead is the essence of Kentucky's summer fruit and flowers. A delicious wine you'll love.' Vist the Spring Hill Winery here http://www.bnbfinder.com/springhill .
