This season, Pittsboro’s acclaimed Fearrington House Restaurant continues its tradition of hosting educational wine classes and dinners regularly. From learning the basics to exploring specific regions, winemakers and vineyards, this leading wine destination in the South provides ample opportunities for both novices and connoisseurs to have in-depth wine experiences.
The program will be led by newly appointed Beverage Director, Todd Chatterton. Chatterton’s career began at New York City’s three-Michelin-star-restaurant and “Best Restaurant in the World” Eleven Madison Park as a sommelier. Chatterton will oversee the beverage program at The Fearrington House Restaurant – the wine program here has garnered three stars from The World of Fine Wine – the beverage industry’s equivalent of Michelin stars.
The informal two-hour classes range from $65 to $85, offer tastes and lively conversation about at least six wines and are accompanied by tastes from Executive Chef Colin Bedford. Visit here to learn more & reserve: Dinners, Classes & Workshops Archives – Fearrington.

New Winter Cocktail Menu
The Fearrington House Restaurant boasts an impressive bourbon collection as well as a full list of hand selected premium spirits, many from notable North Carolina distilleries. The new winter cocktail menu features an updated version of Fearrington’s signature Milk Punch – a crystal clear cocktail made from aged rum, Bourbon, Fernet Branca, Byrrh, Earl Gray Tea & winter spices – and a more aromatic and robust Manhattan style cocktail cleverly named “Newspeak” after Goerge Orwell’s novel, “1984.” Check out the full bar menu of cocktails and dinner items: Bar Menu & Wine Program – Fearrington.
