So with the coming of each season, we at Fearrington get excited to release the newest collaboration with Fullsteam Brewery. This week we are releasing our Fearrington-Fullsteam Summer Beer, and it is:
An American Berliner Weisse steeped with local Elderflower for lifted aromatics. If you recall from last Fall's beer, a Berliner Weisse was the traditional sour ale of Prussia, made with a wheat and barley base with a lower hop inclusion, it was referred to as the "Champagne of the... Full Post >

This past May I took one of my bi-annual trips to California. I love California -- the wine, food, natural beauty and diverse culture is an ever-beckoning call to visit.
As a Sommelier I am fortunate enough to have visited many times, and have gotten to know Sonoma and Napa Valley in a very in-depth way. However, all of the trips I have taken in the past were group oriented, and everything needed to be on a tight schedule, and, most importantly, I had no choice over which wineries I... Full Post >

With the increasingly warmer weather must come increasingly more delicious beer! The seasonal beer that we germinated in conjunction with our buds over at Fullsteam Brewery in Durham (notice the Spring references there, witty right!) is brewed in Belgian style with coriander, turmeric, and lemongrass grown here in our herb garden. If you'd like to share this treat with your friends and family, we have our Spring beer available on tap at The Fearrington House, The Granary, and our beer... Full Post >

Part of our inspiration for the Village's monthly wine themes is to bring attention to wines that don't get the attention they deserve. With each month we provide information, fun anecdotes, and lots of opportunities to taste great wines from all over the world, and in June, we are very excited to feature the wines of one of the oldest European winemaking cultures, the wines of Greece.
Wine has been produced in Greece for over 4,000 years, and was such an integral part of ancient Greek... Full Post >

Fearrington is now starting to change gears for Spring, a few days of nice weather makes for a busy village, and I've taken my last trip away from The Fearrington House kitchen for a while.
I recently returned home from a trip where it took a plane, train and car to get me to a small town outside Paris called "Tain L'Hermitage." This new town is where I went back to school for a bit. This was a great school, where everyone would like to go to, where I learned about chocolate.
The theme... Full Post >
As we get into late spring, there is nothing more refreshing to sip on than a great rosé or sparkling wine. We will be featuring rosés and bubblies from Spain, Italy, France, Germany, Austria, the United States and...well, all over the world this May. These wines are perfect for an every day glass, and also great for celebrating special events that happen during this time of year. Join us at The Granary, The Fearrington House, The Goat and Roost and sip to your hearts delight.

Today we are preserving lemons for the year. The process is simple, but the results are always astounding, especially when added to elevate a dish or garnish to give it a little more pep. We take the lemons and trim off both ends (this helps them to stand up and stack better for large numbers), then we take our knife three quarters of the way down from the top to open them up. We place them in a dish standing up and liberally add salt followed by a good salad oil to cover. They are then left... Full Post >
There is nothing more gratifying then having a successful dinner service, especially after facing multiple last minute "fires" that need to be put out right before, or even during service. Whether it is a product issue or a guest concern, they always seem to pop up right during crunch time. For example, a last minute vegan guest arrives and we then need to quickly create a three to four course specialty menu. Stressful at the time, but when the team rallies together and pulls it off, it is... Full Post >
