Foodies and wine connoisseurs got their fill of culinary bliss over the last four days at Charlotte Wine & Food weekend. CWFD included a series of restaurant dinners, wine seminars, and a Grand Tasting at the Atrium at Two Wells Fargo Atrium Center on Friday night, where guests had access to 20 wine tables, a few select breweries, and food from the following restaurants:

Bulla Gastrobar

Corkbuzz Restaurant & Wine Bar


Fin & Fino

Hawkers Asian Street Fare

Mimosa Grill

ROOTS Café

Stoke

Sweet Lew’s BBQ

Swirl

Upstream

WP Kitchen + Bar

Zinicola

 

Attendees got to mingle with sommeliers and chefs, and bid on auction items that included wine lots, dining experiences, and travel packages. Proceeds from the evening benefitted five child-focused charities in Charlotte.

Each guest got a mobile bidder number, a wristband, and a wine tasting glass to sample everything and anything they wished. With over 100 wines to sample and pair with a mix of cuisines, the evening offered a little bit of everything—savory, sweet, meat-based, vegetarian—and the promise of a food coma on Saturday morning. But occasions like this call for a little indulgence, and the pork belly donut from Stoke was culinary nirvana. Here are a few more delicious highlights from the Grand Tasting (and you can read more about the activities here):
