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!”

Ask about our coffee club at the register and receive a pound of free coffee for every 10 pounds you buy.
