Ah a light and dry white – yes I do


Food and wine are inseparable partners – a magical experience happens when the aromas, textures and flavors of food and wine combine in just the right way.

The Fearrington House is pleased to offer the option of several different levels of wine pairings, as well as an extensive wine list by the bottle or glass. Either way, enjoy select wines from rarely encountered grape varietals and unique growing regions around the world, selected by The Fearrington House’s Wine Director, Maximilian Kast.

The wine list features over 1,100 selections of fine wines. Awarded the ‘Best of Award of Excellence’ from The Wine Spectator since 2004, Fearrington’s extensive wine list has been created to complement the restaurant’s refined contemporary cuisine.

About Wine Pairings

How do we make the pairing selections to accompany your meal? Our first objective is to find wine that fits with our cuisine. Chef Colin Bedford changes the menu with the season, so wine pairings correspondingly change as well. We look for the quality of the wine, its personality, how it compares to other wines of the same variety or region, and its overall value.

“From there, we like to get the guest’s insight,” says Max Kast. “For example, if a guest has a preference for full-bodied, dry white wines, we might pair the De Trafford Chenin Blanc from Stellenbosch, South Africa with the Poached Pear Salad with Blue Cheese first course. The acidity balances out the strength of the blue cheese and has a ripe fruit taste to go with the pear.”

The House’s Bar

Sommelier Paula de Pano adds, “It also gives us a chance to share and interact with our guests about these wines – their history, what makes them so special to us, and why they go wonderfully with the food. There are stories to tell behind every bottle and that makes them more interesting and unique.” By customizing wines, not only to Chef Bedford’s cuisine, but also to each guest’s personal preferences, the end result is a culinary experience – rather than just a delicious dinner.
