A family of Starrs are part of our collection of wineries with Starrlight Mead, a honey winery (mead is honey wine). Owners Becky Starr (Sales/Tasting Room Manager) and Ben Starr (Meadmaker) have made this a family affair.

Most of the honey is from North Carolina beekeepers. Meads range in sweetness from off-dry (lightly sweet) to sweet and include unique ingredients like fruits, spices, peppers and herbs. Taste the award-winning meads, winning Best in Show as Home Mead-Makers and commercial medals in both mead competition and the prestigious Finger Lakes Wine competition.

Wed - Sat: noon - 6pm. Sun, 1pm - 5pm
Sat meadery tours: 1pm, 3pm, 5pm
