It was almost ten years ago that I came to Fearrington Village for the first time. I had flown across the country to interview for the position of Sommelier at The Fearrington House Restaurant. At the time, my wife, daughter and I were looking to relocate and it just turned out that I had met Fearrington's General Manager Theresa Chiettini and Proprietor R.B. Fitch the previous year at a Relais & Chateaux Conference in Switzerland. I remember being nervous the entire flight to... Full Post >

At The Fearrington House Restaurant we are always on the search for the most delicious wines to offer by the glass. This search often takes us on fun adventures to new and exciting regions. Recent explorations have brought the Tajinaste Listan Blanco from the Canary Islands to the list, and we can not be more enthused about how truly distinct and delectable this wine is.
What is Listan Blanco? They make wine in the Canary Islands?
To answer the latter, yes!! And amazing wine to... Full Post >

As the temperature starts to reach into the 90s and the humidity feels like a blanket of invisible water we find ourselves looking for the perfect way to cool down. Nothing in my opinion is better than the India Tea Ale produced in collaboration between Fullsteam Brewery and Fearrington Village. This is our second summer with this beer, and this year it is better than ever.
Since we are in the South, and the historical summer beverage of choice is iced tea, we thought it would be a great... Full Post >

I am happy to announce a project that has been in the making for the past couple of months. Starting in April we will be offering a monthly selection of wines called "Maximilian's Wine Satchel" at The Goat. It will be a collection of six wines, chosen each month by myself, with different themes. Each wine will come with a detailed sheet about the winery, the region it comes from, a little bit about the history of the region, cuisine of the region, and pairing recommendations.
The great... Full Post >

We are excited to launch the newest beer in the Fearrington-Fullsteam Seasonal series: The Heritage Grain Farmhouse Ale. It is a rustic and lively farmhouse ale made with "Wrenz Abruzzi" rye and toasted buckwheat. It is fermented with Wallonian Yeast, a yeast that originates from the Walloon region of Belgium and is the traditional "funky" yeast that adds complexity to the greatest beers of this style.
This complex beer is perfect for reflecting and celebrating the revitalizing nature of... Full Post >

Each year, when the air begins to cool, the smell of the fireplace in the lounge at The Fearrington House Restaurant permeates and mixes with the aroma of our coffee roasting. Combining the two really make you feel as if you are in a quaint village in Europe. When you walk into the restaurant and through the kitchens you feel the magic that goes into creating what we do everyday in throughout the Village Center.
There is one window in the restaurant that looks out to our herb garden and our... Full Post >

The latest edition of the Fearrington-Fullsteam collaboration brew has arrived! Our Fearrington Fall Apple Extra Special Bitter is on tap throughout the Village Center. This is an autumn and Southern inspired take on the traditional style of English Ale, with pressed heirloom apples from Foggy Ridge Cider in Dugspur, Virginia. With 6% ABV, strong apple tones are carried throughout with caramel and toffee notes from the malt. You'll notice just a touch of roasted malt in the finish. This... Full Post >

We can all use a retreat from this busy world we live in. From our busy schedules and endless to-do lists, to our constant desire to stay on top of things, we often forget to sit back, relax, and remember why we work so hard. There is evidence that momentary escapes and adventures can bring a sense of calm and joy, and provide a regular equilibrium to our busy lives. For me, this retreat can often be found in a glass of wine.
How, you might ask, can a glass of wine provide a momentary... Full Post >
