This beer is perfect for relaxing after a day of holiday shopping or to share with family over dinner. Here's what Maximilian Kast shared about this holiday delight: "Corsendonk Christmas Ale is a Belgian Dark Strong Ale made in a similar fashion as a Trappist Dubbel style. It has aromas of Prune, Raisin, Fig, and Floral notes as well, it is full-bodied and rich... Full Post >

Virginia Wine Summit 2014

I recently returned from the Virginia Wine Summit in Richmond, and yep, I am pretty excited about the wine. It’s not just local, it’s really good. The Summit is a well organized event promoting Virginia, its wines, and its wine regions. For the event, I was asked to participate on a panel discussion about "Dark Horse" grape varieties. The opportunity was exciting because it deals with one of the most important issues in the American wine industry today: the necessity to move beyond... Full Post >

Being Creative with Fullsteam

Food, beer, wine, restaurants, service, music, painting, sculpting -- what do all of these have in common? Creativity and imagination! Some are individualistic expressions and some are joint, or better, collaborative expressions. The teamwork and creativity that goes into restaurants is something that when working well, should go unnoticed, it should feel natural. In our second year collaborating with Sean Lilly Wilson and Fullsteam Brewery I feel that natural mutual creative energy in... Full Post >

South African Winemakers Visit Fearrington

On September 18th, South African winemakers Eben Sadie and Adi Badenhorst will visit us for a four-course dinner at the Garden Terrace. Not only are these two winemakers distinguished, and altering the state of wine in South Africa, they also love what they do -- and you can tell once you sip a glass of their wine. I was lucky enough to spend a day with Adi last year. He is an amazingly passionate guy, a passion that is infectious, and that passion shows in his wines. Eben's wines are... 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. This will be a dinner featuring wines that rarely make it to North Carolina, wines so good that barely 2% of them are exported, the rest consumed by the in-the-know locals. Even more enticing are the grape varieties of Switzerland and the Valle d'Aosta, grapes like Petite Arvine, Amigne, Cornalin, and Humagne Rouge, grapes... Full Post >
