        I don't think its that magical - rather than the Mee Voralans/Vorulans you could probably get away with just a few sacrifices to the particular spirit. I don't think people who make honey or mead need to have ever met Gorakiki bee worshippers either. The Mee Voralans don't content themselves with just a little bit of rot on the grapes - they make their wine out of pure fungus, the mushroom wine mentioned in Cults of Prax, seemingly of great significance in the nomad social order (cult rank determines how much you are entitled to).

        (I highly recommend De Bertoli Noble One as an Australian botrytis wine that is like nectar of the gods)
