Mead Honey Wine from Starrlight Mead

We are glad you found us!

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 Chatham Mills, is a honey winery, specializing in a wide variety of meads from traditional to fruit to herb-infused. Using local NC honey, and lots of love, we are crafting award winning mead to surprise and delight you. Directions and Hours - Come visit us!

What's New at the Meadery?

New Flavors this year - We added several new flavors last year, the last Thanksgiving Weekend was our S'more Wild Foam Mead - the chocolate marshmallow version of that crazy Meadowfoam traditional. Marshmallow on the front and chocolate on the back end of the taste! Unusual... in a good way!
Just returned Saturday, January 16, our semi-sweet Blackberry Mead! Many of you have been asking when this sweet-tart favorite will be back! This WILL sell out quickly!
Check out all the other flavors here!

We are getting ready to build the largest Mead Hall in NC! Check out our very own Kickstarter-like campaign, our Founder's Club, and get great awards, like Free Tastings for Life.
