Starrlight Mead


A family of Starrs are part of our collection of UNC-TV NC Weekend 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. Part of the Heart of North Carolina B&B and Craft Beverage Trail. See details about events.

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.
