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!
