Wine Director Maximilian Kast oversees all wine experiences throughout the Village Center. He describes the wine program as, “Encompassing wines of character and quality curated for optimal drinking with Fearrington cuisine.”
The Fearrington House Restaurant’s wine cellar is a library. Each wine allows you to discover a story, as told by our wine team. Fearrington’s sommeliers expertly select wine for you based on your preferences to pair perfectly with Chef Colin Bedford’s cuisine.
Choose to enjoy a glass of wine with dinner, enjoy wine pairings with your three or four course meal, or purchase a glass or bottle at The Fearrington House Restaurant’s full-service bar to enjoy by the fireplace in the lounge.
Wine pairings by our sommeliers include sparkling, white, red, dessert, fortified wines and the occasional beer. Allow our wine professionals to treat your taste buds to unique grape varietals and wine regions!
