Meet Beverage Director Paula de Pano

I never thought that I would end up in the hospitality industry – my parents, traditional and well-meaning, always had high hopes that their daughter would become a lawyer or a doctor. But I soon found I had more interest in cooking fancy dinners for the family than burying my nose in books and studying numbers. In 2008, I enrolled at the Culinary Institute of America in New York after acquiring my a degree in Marketing and Public Relations in the Philippines. It was at the CIA where I... Full Post >

Fearrington-Fullsteam Fall Collaboration

The Fearrington-Fullsteam Fall beer is our take on an English-style Extra Special Bitter (ESB). To give the beer a Southern twist, we add over 100 pounds of cider apple pomace (pressed apple pulp) from Silver Creek and Seamans Orchards in Virginia. These fruity apple tones complement the ESB's natural nutty and sweet aromas, resulting in flavors of caramel, toasted malts, and a lingering apple sweetness. On the label, we call this seasonal offering "the true taste of autumn in the South,"... Full Post >

What Makes Fearrington Magic

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 >

Fearrington Fullsteam Summer ITA is Here

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...

Fullsteam Fearrington Seasonal Spring

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 >

Roost is (still) Rockin’!

Although our beer garden Roost has been in full swing since the Spring, my personal favorite time to enjoy this spot is right now! September is one of my favorite months for many reasons, (hello fellow Libras!), but among those would definitely the cooler weather and start of Fall! Mornings and evenings are so pleasant we long for them to linger just a little bit longer. With this is mind it is the perfect time to come enjoy an evening with us here at Roost.  We now offer wood-fired... Full Post >
