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 our available meads is $5.00, 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! « less

This is an (almost) hidden gem along the back end of the Chatham Mills buildings. Not only are the different meads a delight, but the owners are incredibly sweet themselves. They are also creative in the different blends they experiment with throughout the year. You can't find another experience like this in the state as far as I know. The... More

We went last weekend for a tasting ($6 for up to 8 meads that you select from a list of about 14 or so). You have to drive around the back of the former Chatham Mills building (off 15-501, on the left if you are heading toward the circle in Pittsboro). Very neat and clean venue. Staff was so friendly...

This was a very enjoyable sampling of multiple types of meads. There was a surprising variety of meads from semi-dry to sweet to multiple fruit, spice, and herb infused meads. The owners were delightful and you could tell they loved their work and their product. The price was very reasonable, $6.00 for 8 tastings which included your glass. There was... More

I went to Starrlight Mead with my fiancé, my roommate and her boyfriend. While looking for places to wine taste near Raleigh, I stumbled upon the Starrlight Mead website and we chose to go there on a double date and I am SO glad that we did. I love wine tasting and did not know what mead wine was. The... More

My boyfriend and I visited Starrlight on a whim and enjoyed ourselves immensely. The staff was friendly, and very knowledegable. They ensured that we knew a great deal about each item we were tasting, and didn't pressure us to purchase anything. The tour we went on was short since it's such a small operation, but it was great getting insight... More

From the moment I heard meadery I was excited, but when we arrived I couldn't have asked for a better experience or better tasting mead! They have flavors ranging from traditional mead, to spiced apple, to sage. Not only do they taste incredible but our server/owner had tried plenty of recipes and gave many suggestions of how to use the... More

My husband and I included this spot on a winery tour we did in Chatham County. Located right in historic Pittsboro, this place is a little treasure. Lovely assortment of wines made from honey. The folks give great information and background. Lovely place to browes as well and conveniently located.

My wife and I have had mead elsewhere and were not impressed. However, Starlight Mead changed our opinions about meads. Worth the visit! Highly recommend the Meadhito!
