Guests joke to us about how it must be fun to be able to taste so many wines and say they’re just about to change career paths out of envy. I tell them that there’s more to wine than just drinking; after all, wine isn’t just a beverage to us. Wines tell a story, a place, a time, a piece of their own history – and of all of the wines that we have at the Fearrington House, I don’t think there’s a wine that has more stories to tell than our Burgundies. It is truly a fascinating journey to be able to know where these wines come from.
A few days ago, Wine Director Max Kast held a class at The Fearrington Granary, that focused on Burgundy. With wines from all over the Cote d’Or – The Golden Slope – of Burgundy, where the finest expression of Pinot Noir can be found, it was truly a class not to be missed.
If you did happen to miss it, come visit us in the next few weeks as we will be offering the wines that he poured during his class in our own wine list. From Domaine Francois Lamarche’s fabulous 1er Cru of Les Chaumes, to the amazing potential of the Les Fremiets 1er Cru Volnay of Joseph Voillot, these wines speak of Burgundy’s incomparable romance.
