Chatham County’s third winery opened late summer 2010. A family of Starrs joins our collection with Starrlight Mead, our first honey winery (mead is honey wine). Owners Becky Starr (Sales/Tasting Room Manager) and Ben Starr (Meadmaker) have made this a family affair and son Chris is the beekeeper.
All of the honey is from North Carolina. Taste their already award-winning mead, which edged out more than 200 entries in the International Mead Association’s 2006 competition. Ben and Becky won Best in Show in the Home Mead-Maker category for their Starrlight Mulled Apple Cyser.
Find them on Facebook. Check in on foursquare. Follow them on Twitter.
