Sip On Honey Wine With A Visit To Starrlight Mead Winery In North Carolina
North Carolina is home to over 400 vineyards and around 200 wineries so there’s no shortage of a homegrown tasting experience in the Tar Heel State. But have you ever visited a mead winery? (Harry Potter fans will recognize mead from the menu at the Leaky Cauldron in London.) If mead is a new concept to you, it’s wine made from fermenting honey with water and flavorings. It sounds delicious – because it is. And you can visit a meadery in Pittsboro to sip on honey wine (a.k.a. mead) and even stock up on bottles of your own.
Why not take a little road trip (with a designate driver, of course) and find out?! Starrlight Mead is open seven days a week. The hours are Monday through Saturday from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Tours are available on Saturday and Sunday only. Learn more from the Starrlight Mead website.
Address: 130 Lorax Ln, Pittsboro, NC 27312, USA
