Every Glass is an Adventure, A Retreat to a New Place

We can all use a retreat from this busy world we live in. From our busy schedules and endless to-do lists, to our constant desire to stay on top of things, we often forget to sit back, relax, and remember why we work so hard. There is evidence that momentary escapes and adventures can bring a sense of calm and joy, and provide a regular equilibrium to our busy lives. For me, this retreat can often be found in a glass of wine. How, you might ask, can a glass of wine provide a momentary... Full Post >

Bordeaux Wine Dinner with Trey Stephenson

There are moments that I feel bad for Bordeaux. It is the region that created modern wine as we know it. It has been an inspiration to wine regions across the world, from Rioja, Barolo, Maipo Valley to the  Napa Valley, Tuscan Coast, and Coonawara. It has been keeping us curious about the nuance of vintage since the comet year of 1815, and we have been at its whims in prices since the creation of the 1855 classification. Bordeaux, no matter how you look at it, is the most important wine... Full Post >

Second Year of the Winter Coffee Pecan Porter

When the temperature drops there are a few things that become necessities: scarves, hats, mittens, wool socks and my morning cup of coffee. The way a warm cup of coffee warms me up and awakens my senses prepares me for the activities of the day. Throughout the year, Fearrington Village is enveloped in that same aroma of freshly roasted coffee. In the winter the aroma is more powerful and even more welcoming. When I sense that smell I know our coffee roaster Julian Vargas is busy at work at... Full Post >
