This Saturday’s Wine Tasting!

It's spring time and with that the weather is (hopefully!) warming up. For me, nothing shouts spring more than Riesling. I love a nice, crisp white with a touch of sweetness to sip on the porch. It's the iced tea of wine for me! However, Riesling gets a bad wrap due to that reputation of being cloyingly sweet. Thankfully, it is a versatile wine that can run the gamut of sweetness, from dry and austere all the way to honeyed-sweet, and everywhere in between. To celebrate this wide range, we... Full Post >

Syrah This Saturday

This weeks theme for the wine tasting is Syrah, one of my personal favorite red grape varieties. With the weather warming up and the sun starting to show a bit more, the grill that's been laying dormant in everyone's storage should be making more of an appearance! With that in mind, we have three Syrah selections that would be perfect for any afternoon spent by the grill! To celebrate this wide range, we have three beautiful Syrahs for you to taste this Saturday! We hope you can join us... Full Post >

Maximilian’s Monthly Wine Satchel

I am happy to announce a project that has been in the making for the past couple of months. Starting in April we will be offering a monthly selection of wines called "Maximilian's Wine Satchel" at The Goat. It will be a collection of six wines, chosen each month by myself, with different themes. Each wine will come with a detailed sheet about the winery, the region it comes from, a little bit about the history of the region, cuisine of the region, and pairing recommendations. The great...

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.

Fullsteam Fearrington Seasonal Spring

We are excited to launch the newest beer in the Fearrington-Fullsteam Seasonal series: The Heritage Grain Farmhouse Ale.  It is a rustic and lively farmhouse ale made with "Wrenz Abruzzi" rye and toasted buckwheat.  It is fermented with Wallonian Yeast, a yeast that originates from the Walloon region of Belgium and is the traditional "funky" yeast that adds complexity to the greatest beers of this style. This complex beer is perfect for reflecting and celebrating the revitalizing nature of... Full Post >

Sustainable, Organic & Biodynamic Wine

We previously announced the beginning of our transition to include more organic and local wines on our wine by the glass menu at The Fearrington House. We live in a very exciting time for wine, and one fortunately where some of the best producers are using organic or biodynamic methods. There are three main types of eco-friendly viticulture: Sustainable, Organic, and Biodynamic. Sustainable Sustainable viticulture is a practice that has no formal regulations, but states a grower interest in... Full Post >

New Year, New Wines by the Glass

We are excited to share changes to our wines by-the-glass offerings in 2016! Starting this month, our by-the-glass section of the wine list will focus on producers which either practice organic or biodynamic agriculture in their vineyards, or focus on wines made from grapes grown in vineyards that are cared for in these two techniques. As a green certified restaurant we aim to continually increase what we can do to benefit the environment, making our choice for our wines a natural... Full Post >
