Paula De Pano Receives Prestigious World of Fine Wine Award for the Fearrington House

Perhaps one of the best parts about my job would be the opportunities to travel to top dining destinations. For me, traveling enriches my soul at the same time as I'm expanding my knowledge of food and wine. To travel is to learn, and to learn is to share all the newfound information to my own guests when I return. I was in London recently to represent Fearrington House as it was awarded one...

Looking Back at the Sparkling Rosé Champagne Wine Dinner

This dinner was one of our favorite events of 2019. Beverage Director Paula de Pano recalls the evening course by course and sip by sip. Enjoy! If there’s one wine that I have trouble saying “no” to, it would be Champagne. It becomes worse when it’s rosé Champagne! The irony is that pink has to be my least favorite color in the world. For someone whose color palate spans black, white,...

NC Beer Month Kickoff with Four Saints Beer Dinner

We are so thrilled to be lucky enough to host Four Saints Brewing to kick off NC Beer Month. Since I arrived at Fearrington in 2017, I've had the pleasure of getting our beer dropped off by Joel McClosky, one of the founders of the brewery... We've shared good beer stories, chatted about emerging beer styles, what's going on in the industry, and have lusted after the idea of holding a beer dinner...

Watson’s Cocktails for Valentines Day

Valentine’s Day is a special, one-of-a-kind holiday, and nothing says “I love you” better than wine and dinner by candlelight with just you and your one and only. It is also loaded with important decisions to make – what to eat, what to drink, what to do, where to go, what to get, the list goes on. Luckily, at the Fearrington House Restaurant, we have you covered on every front; romantic...

Looking Back at the Billecart-Salmon Wine Dinner

This dinner was one of our favorite events of 2018. Beverage Director Paula DePano recalls the evening course by course and sip by sip. Enjoy! I have to admit that when the Triangle got hit by a snowstorm on the weekend before the Billecart-Salmon wine dinner, I was convinced that the event was cursed. The wine dinner was initially scheduled to happen on the 13th of September but had to be...

From the Garden to the Glass: Fearrington’s Gardens & Their Place in Your Drink

A few months ago, I wrote a post about the significance of different veggies, botanicals and fruits when it comes to the integrity of a good liquor; the same significance applies to the food on your plate and the cocktail in your glass. For many years now at the Fearrington House Restaurant, the cultivation and appreciation of that produce has been practiced as a means of bringing more to our...

Summer Dram Highlight: Four Seasonal Summer Sippers

Summer is in full swing – the days are getting shorter, but they’re still hotter than ever. Going to the pool is a common way to beat the heat, and a drink in hand when you’re on the floatie or sunning poolside is the next best accompaniment to company. I hope that, on lazy summer days like pool days, your hardest decision is the choice of poolside libation. For that pressing situation, I...

Staying Spry & Keeping It Classy with Paired Mocktails

Bear with me here – I know a lack of alcohol in a cocktail doesn’t always sound like a good time. However, there are situations and circumstances that warrant for a tipple-less sipper. It is not uncommon to need an accompanying drink with your meal that isn’t water. Water, even with its many virtues, is boring, and pairs with everything well as equally as it does poorly. Luckily, here you...
