Return of the Coffee Pecan Porter

Each year, when the air begins to cool, the smell of the fireplace in the lounge at the Fearrington House permeates and mixes with the aroma of our coffee roasting. The two together really do make you feel like you are in a quaint village in Europe, and when you walk into the restaurant and through the kitchens you feel the magic that goes into creating what we do everyday in the stores and restaurants. There is one window in the restaurant that looks out to our herb garden and our ancient... Full Post >

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 >

Kanonkop Estate Wine Dinner

We live in the most exciting time to be a wine enthusiast in the history of the world. Some may say that this is a bold statement but the reality is, there has never been such high quality wine coming from so many regions all over the world. In the eighteenth century, when one mentioned world class wine there was just Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne and Rhein Riesling. Even a hundred years ago the conversation was still focused on those areas. Now the world is our oenological oyster and there are... Full Post >
