A Recap of Charlotte Wine & Food Weekend


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



Sweet Lew’s BBQ



WP Kitchen + Bar



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):
