The Charlotte Wine and Food Weekend brings together leading wine makers and chefs from around the world to celebrate and promote knowledge of and appreciation for great wine and food.
The event was born out of the vision of a group of civic-minded wine and food enthusiasts in 1989 who wanted to create a series of events that will benefit the Charlotte community. Today, the annual event has grown and has become a space for the best winemakers and chefs from around the world to gather over good food and great wine. Since its birth, the Charlotte Wine and Food Weekend has contributed over $4 million to the community. Forbes Travel Guide ranked Charlotte Wine and Food Weekend one of the top five in the United States in 2014.
Profit from the event will serve as contributions to charitable organizations that will benefit children and their families in the Charlotte community. This year, the donations will focus on Nourishing Youth and Children, nurturing the whole child in body, mind and spirit, benefiting organizations such as Charlotte Concerts; The Council for Children’s Rights; Pat’s Place Family Advocacy; Safe Alliance; and Second Harvest Food Bank.
