It has been told the All-Father Odin was also called “Raven-God” due to his relationship with two ravens, Huginn and Muninn, who played a vital role in Odin’s rule by keeping him well-informed on the endeavors of Mankind. Each morning, Odin would release his loyal servants at the break of dawn to descend onto Midgard, the realm of men, where they would look, listen, and gather information before returning to Asgard with any new knowledge they could deliver to Odin. The two ravens were often seen perching on Odin’s shoulders while telling him about the things they learned in Midgard.
We are proud to present our new Texas Rennaisance Festival Special Edition Wines, in an homage to Odin's Ravens:
Huginn, translated as “Thought,” symbolizes the connection between the All-Father’s intellectual & spiritual capabilities and his role as the ruler of fallen warriors in Valhalla.
This American Red Wine is a metaphor for the blood spilled in battle, known in Norse folklore as “Huginn’s Sea,” with a deep crimson color, and intense aromas of Black Mulled-Berries, All Spice and Toasted Vanilla, with a smooth and rich finish that would quench the thirst of the All-Father himself.
Muninn, roughly translated as “Memory” or “Mind,” is perceived to be a physical embodiment of the All-Father’s knowledge and ancient wisdom.
This Texas White Wine, similarly, is the physical embodiment of sunlight in symbiosis with natural metamorphoses, an expression of a years’ worth of wind, rain, heat, frost, and the gentle nurturing from shepherds. Offering distinct notes of Orange Blossom, Lemon Meringue, Jackfruit and Incense with a thought-provoking mouthfeel, full of complexity and a crisp, refreshing finish.
Find these exclusive wines at any Texas Renaissance Festival Tavern!
