The Fearrington Granary

A full-service restaurant, the Old Granary is the perfect spot to sit and enjoy an elegant lunch or brunch. The Contemporary american cuisine features an extensive selection of hand-made salads, entrees and desserts. This vibrant restaurant, decorated with warm colors and rich fabrics, provides seating on various levels with views of the charming village shops, surrounding gardens, and the rolling pastures filled with Belted Galloway Cows and Tennessee Fainting Goats.

In our second year collaborating with Sean Lilly Wilson and Fullsteam Brewery I feel that natural mutual creative energy in... Full Post >

The Wine of the Alps

Today, July 24th we will be hosting Trey Stephenson from Neal Rosenthal Imports (Mad Rose) for a dinner focused on the wines of Switzerland and the Valle d'Aosta of Italy.

California, On My Terms.

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...
