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 >

Sharing the Spice with Pepperfest

This Sunday, Fearrington joined over 50 other chefs and local vendors for the 9th Annual Pepper Festival - one of the largest chef competitions in North Carolina! Held in Briar Chapel, just down the road from Fearrington Village, Pepper Festival challenges North Carolina’s top chefs to create original recipes, from pepper donuts to pepper beer, using one secret ingredient: the locally bred and grown North Carolina pepper. Chef Tom Whitaker and Chef Paola de Mayyer served Deviled... 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 >

Summer Cocktails at the Granary!

As the weather turns brighter and temperatures start to rise, the need for seasonal, refreshing cocktails begins to show itself.

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...

Fearrington Coffee

Did you know over 100lbs of coffee beans are roasted at Fearrington every week? Those beans make the coffee at The Goat for frappes and gelato, morning coffee at breakfast at The Fearrington House, and after dinner at The Granary. Fearrington coffee just doesn't compare to big name coffee blends, says Fearrington's coffee roaster, Patrick. "We use only premium Arabica beans and carefully roast our coffee to the best of its potential," he said. "We ensure freshness by bagging our coffee the... Full Post >

Adventurous Wine

If you're looking for a wine that's a little more off-the-grid, Fearrington's wine program has many different options to choose from. We offer a wide variety of truly adventurous wine selections, from the Dingac Co-operatives Pavlac Mali from the Croatian coast to multiple vintages of Chateau Musar dating back to 1984. In addition to our growing biodynamic and organic wine program, which we announced earlier this year, Fearrington is increasingly seeking out wines from right here in North... Full Post >
