About CWFW

Charlotte Wine & Food Weekend brings together leading winemakers and chefs from around the world to celebrate and advance public knowledge of and appreciation for great wine and food, while making significant contributions to charitable organizations that benefit children and their families in the Charlotte community.

In 1989, a group of civic-minded wine and food enthusiasts had a vision of creating a series of events to raise money for charity. Out of this vision, the Charlotte Wine & Food Weekend was born and we have contributed over $5.5 million to the community over the 30+ years. With time and care, the event has grown in stature, attracting the best winemakers and chefs from around the world. In fact, Forbes Travel Guide ranked Charlotte Wine & Food Weekend one of the top five in the United States in 2014 and most recently was chosen as a must-attend wine event by the Sommeliers Choice Awards.

Charlotte Wine & Food Weekend's charitable endeavors focus on Nourishing Youth and Children, nurturing the whole child in body, mind and spirit. We are proud to partner with the beneficiaries of the 2019-2020 seasons for Charlotte Wine & Food Weekend: GenOne; Mitchell's Fund; The Learning Collaborative; and The Relatives.
