More Than Just a Deli

The Goat’s Wine Shop

Fearrington’s Wine Director Maximilian Kast and The Goat’s wine guru Xavyer Burroughs have expanded selections of wine by the bottle and provide wine by the glass with a special theme each month. Check out Xavyer’s blog to see what is being poured now!

All wines are hand selected for their quality, character, and reasonable price. We offer wines from smaller quality producers and from importers that are focused on traditional wines from winemakers that use sustainable, organic or biodynamic viticulture. Not sure what to try? Ask Xavyer! Wine Director Kast says,”We are pouring our wine and beer hearts out for you; we hope you enjoy!”

Soon after The Fearrington House opened in 1980, we created The Fearrington House Blend to share with our guests. A mix of El Salvadoran, Guatemalan and Sumatran coffees, it is a mild coffee with a chocolaty and earthy aroma and a smooth, well-balanced flavor. Available in regular, decaf and espresso. Ask about our coffee club at the register and receive a pound of free coffee for every 10 pounds you buy.
