The Art of Blind Tasting

I get it. I really do. I understand why it may seem impressive or look like a magic trick to people who get to see someone who can pinpoint a wine’s provenance just by looking, sniffing, tasting and spitting out a wine. Out of the thousands of different grapes in the world, a gifted wine taster can tell you what grape a wine is made of, where it’s from, which vintage it came from, and if it is worth its salt to have that price attached to it in a wine list. I remember my jaw dropping... Full Post >

Pepperfest: A Tasty Time Was Had By All

The Fearrington Granary and Chef Colin served up sweet and spicy bites at the 6th Annual Abundance Foundation Pepper Festival this Sunday. Oh, what a day!

We spent the afternoon strolling from table to table and enjoying zesty samples from some of the best local eateries, brew pubs and distilleries in the piedmont. Colin served up over 1000 tastings of Country Fried Pork with... Full Post >

Mama Fitch Asters

Fall brings new colors throughout Fearrington Village, whether its the warm hued leaves or fresh pops of purple! In several gardens at Fearrington, including The Fearrington Granary's patio, you'll find Aster Tartaricus; these tall flowering plants are an old Fitch family favorite. They bloom late summer into early fall and are not temperamental in the season's changing conditions. They provide a lovely color, back of the border structure and work great as cut flowers for fall gatherings! Full Post >

Spicing up the Refreshments

This fiery concoction was created by The Fearrington Granary's own resident mixologist, Talita Mauro. While experimenting with hot peppers from one the Village's gardens, she crafted this perfectly balanced cocktail featuring tequila, Cointreau, mango and orange juice. This creativity is the driving force behind our popular Daily Cocktail Features (ask your server next time you dine at The Fearrington Granary for dinner), which have included the Jalapeno Margarita, the Cantalope Cooler, and...

Mas de Daumas Gassac Wine Dinner

Mas de Daumas Gassac is not your everyday wine. You will not see it at your local grocery store, you will not easily find its scores in your favorite wine magazine, and you might just have a hard time placing it in your wine vocabulary -- yet, to taste these wines is a necessity for any wine lover. These wines represent the very essence of what makes wine great.  On September 19th we will have Vergile Rousseau, National Brand Manager for the winery, and Thomas Meunier its importer, joining us...
