Our vision is to create an approachable event with educational components, highlight North Carolina’s finest restaurants & culinary talents by pairing them with wine from all around the globe. This event will also serve as an opportunity to raise funds and awareness for local charities and missions. We will open up all three levels of the famed DPAC for attendants to engage with restaurants and wineries in addition to an on-stage experience highlighting the North Carolina Wine Industry and the Agriculture that feeds it. Additionally, we will host VIP ticket holders in the newly renovated President’s Club with rare and specialty spirits, beer & wine and private catering. The VIP experience offers a private entrance and restrooms for guests to take advantage of. Another component that will reinforce the exceptional experience we are creating for attendants are the educational components showcasing wine producers and Sommeliers from all over the world allowing access to some of the most respected personalities in the business. We will create an intimate environment that allows attendants to eat up the local culinary scene while learning more about it and the wines that are being shared.
