June: The Wines of Greece!

Greetings fellow wine enthusiasts!  Each month here at Fearrington we will be featuring wines of a specific place or type throughout all three of the restaurants here in The Village.  At The Goat, all of the wine that we have by the glass will be from that particular month’s focus.

For the month of June, everything by the glass will be from Greece!

THYMIOPOULOUS VINEYARDS – “Boarding Pass” l $7/gls

Crisp, floral, and light on its feet, this perfect warm weather white is sure to be a favorite among those daring enough to part with their glass of Pinot Grigio!

DOMAINE SIGALAS – Aα Blend l $7/gls

Domaine Sigalas is probably the most recognized Greek producer here, and for good reason.  This blend of Assyrtiko and Athiri is yet another delicious example of their talent!

GENTILINI – Robola l $8/gls

This is going to be my favorite of the whites that we’ll have, and primarily because it is one of the best to offer in terms of flavors and aromatics.  Stick your nose in a glass of this ASAP!

GAI’A – 14-18h Rosé l $8/gls

Made from the Agiorgitiko (Ah-yor-YEE-ti-ko) grape, the 14-18 h designation is the amount of time the must (freshly pressed grape juice) remained in contact with the skins giving it a beautiful rosy hue!

THYMIOPOULOUS VINEYARDS – Young Vines Xinomavro l $9/gls

Roughly translating to “bitter black” or “sour black” the wine made from this grape is anything but off-putting!  Imagine the liveliness of Beaujolais with a little more flesh on the fruit.
