Artisans of Flavor
Chef Chris Huerta and his culinary team are known for some of the best locally-sourced dishes in Western North Carolina. They handcraft each one with farm-fresh, sustainable ingredients from our own gardens and greenhouses to bring out the season's most vibrant flavors. With a mind for elevated, classic southern cuisine, the team also strives to bring together the best producers throughout the southeast and offer your guests a unique, yet unpretentious, dining experience.
Great drinks can make a celebration, get it just right and guests will remember your gathering for years. Using both tried and true favorites as well as unique, garden-sourced ingredients, the beverage specialists at Old Edwards will work with you to create a menu of beverages that play ever so nicely with your meal. Artisanal liqueurs and house-made bitters are just the tip of the iceberg.
Finding Your New Favorite Wine
Our head Sommelier, Trevor Waldrop, and his team take great care in choosing which vintners to represent in our cellars. He likes to focus on small, family-owned wineries that see themselves not only as winemakers but also as stewards of the land. For that reason, the vast majority of our list is certified sustainable, with many of our producers being organic as well. Beyond the delicious nectar that’s in the glass, every winery and producer has a story that tends to be just as compelling.
Relais & Châteaux is an association of more than 580 landmark hotels and restaurants that are dedicated to sharing a passion for quality service and looking to provide genuine hospitality —to cater to guests’ needs in a spontaneous, friendly and generous fashion. We know that you are looking for an authentic culinary experience. What better way to create that connection than to share our local culture through food, drink, and a friendly welcome?
