September: Chic Wines of the Loire Valley!

Greetings fellow wine enthusiasts!  Each month here at Fearrington we will be featuring wines of a specific place or type throughout all three of the restaurants here in The Village.  At The Goat, all of the wine that we have by the glass will be from that particular month’s focus.

For the month of September, we’ll welcome Autumn with wines of the Loire Valley!

DOMAINE BRANGER - “Terroir les Gras Moutons” | $7/gls

Branger’s top tier Muscadet-Sevre-et-Maine is light-medium bodied, fragrant, and intensely mineral. This is shelfish wine, for sure!

PHILIPPE GILBERT - Menetou-Salon Blanc| $9/gls

Sauvignon Blanc showing soft yellow peach and melon, a backbone of bright acidity, and a slight custard creaminess once the fireworks have subsided.

CLAUDE RIFFAULT - Sancerre Rosé | $8/gls

This beautiful rosé of Pinot Noir is hugely aromatic with all of the ripe strawberry, hibiscus, and crisp cherry goodness you’ll love!

CLOS ROCHE BLANCHE - “Cuvée Pif” | $8/gls

A Cabernet Franc/Malbec combo that dazzles with candied violet, ripe plum, damson, and a welcome distinct dusty minerality!

DOMAINE GROSBOIS - “Gabare” Chinon | $8/gls

100% Cabernet Franc, fermented in concrete, with dark fruit, grilled peppers, and robust tannins carrying this wine through to your soul!

Being Creative with Fullsteam

Food, beer, wine, restaurants, service, music, painting, sculpting -- what do all of these have in common? Creativity and imagination! Some are individualistic expressions and some are joint, or better, collaborative expressions. The teamwork and creativity that goes into restaurants is something that when working well, should go unnoticed, it should feel natural. In our second year collaborating with Sean Lilly Wilson and Fullsteam Brewery I feel that natural mutual creative energy in... Full Post >
