Mecercedes-Benz of South Charlotte is sponsoring a Vintner Dinner at Morton’s Steakhouse on April 22 and we are also the Platinum Sponsor for the Grand Gala & Live Auction on April 24 at The Ritz Carlton.
Charlotte Wine & Food Weekend has announced an impressive lineup of more than 50 vintners, winemakers, brewmasters and spirits for the bi-annual Weekend that begins Thursday, April 22 through Saturday, April 24. The Weekend has added new events but lowered pricing on many of the gatherings to provide more value for attendees and the largest contributions to the 2010 designated charities. Tickets for all events can be purchased online at www.charlottewineandfoodweekend.org or by calling 704-338-WINE (9463). Tickets are sold on a first come, first serve basis.
Host vintners are some of the legendary names in the wine industry including Robert Foley, Dick Ward, and Walter Schug. Guests will learn about winemaking, viticulture and other interesting tidbits from leading winemakers from around the globe. New this year is a beer dinner hosted by the owners of Flying Dog Brewery and Bells Brewery at The Liberty on South Boulevard. The brewmasters will be on hand to guide diners through a unique selection of craft beers and answer questions. Ticket prices are $65-$175.
