Charlotte Chefs Head to the Coast for Charleston Wine + Food Festival

In just a few short weeks, several Charlotte-area chefs will make the quick three-hour drive down south to Charleston, SC for Charleston Wine + Food Festival 2019. This year’s celebration of food and wine will be its 14th year and takes place from Wednesday, March 6 through Sunday, March 10.

Charleston Wine + Food Festival is comprised of over 100 events and experiences and features chefs from all over the region. Enjoy hands-on classes like pickling or bread-making; beverage workshops on Greek wine or sour beers; meals at top Charleston restaurants; and of course, the Culinary Village full of unlimited tastings.

Charlotte chefs are no strangers to CHSWFF. Last year, more than 20 chefs, bartenders, and brewers attended the festival to give attendees a taste of what Charlotte’s all about.
