When you think of Mead, the heart of central North Carolina is probably not the first thing that comes to mind! You probably think of Renaissance Fairs, Vikings and old English castles. We hope to change that! Starrlight Mead, located in Pittsboro at the Chatham Mill, is North Carolina's newest honey winery. Using local NC honey, and lots of love, we are crafting award winning honey wine to surprise and delight you.We do Mead Tasting any time that we are open. Tasting of 8 of our available meads is $7.00, And you get to keep the glass! Stop by for a bottle of mead (honey wine), a tour of the facility and a friendly welcome. If you have not tried mead before - just ask, we will be glad to share our love of this extraordinary beverage with you!

Don't miss this meadery. The outside looks less impressive but the mead, service and production room are worth the look. We did the tasting and bought 3 bottles. Great taste and very knowledgeable staff makes this a must visit in our opinion.

Great place to get local meads. I especially like the pink peppercorn one they make for breast cancer awareness. My other favorites are: Nordic, spiced apple, blackberry and ginger meads. Great place to come to do a tasting as well.

Glad you found us! Yes, Mead Day is our biggest event of the year - and a little crowded. We'd love to have you back when you have more time for a tour and tasting! Cheers!

They have a wonderful selection of wines, my sister and I enjoyed the blackberry wine the most. Did not take the tour just tasted wine. They do have some very interesting wines, must try!

The atmosphere, the friendly employees, and the delicious mead all keep me coming back! Be sure to check out the mead tasting and stop by for one of the special events. A tour of the mead production floor is always a treat.
