Wined and Dined

Local and visiting epicureans alike will descend on the Queen City April 22nd through 26th for the 25th Charlotte Wine & Food Weekend. What began as a weekend-long celebration has grown to a five-day festival of all things food and wine hosted by the city of Charlotte every even-numbered year. A Vitner’s Tasting kicks off the weekend on Tuesday evening as guests are invited to sip wines while strolling through Atherton Market. To mark the 25th anniversary, 19 restaurant partners will simultaneously host “Charlotte’s Largest Dinner Party” on Thursday, April 24th at locations across the city. Attendees can drink and dine happy knowing that proceeds are donated to local charities and have totaled over $3.5 million. Tickets prices vary for each event and tend to sell out quickly.
