Broaden your dinner horizons and indulge your taste buds at the 17th Annual Central Carolina Food and Wine Festival. Sponsored by the Central Carolina Community Foundation, various dinners and wine tastings raise money to assist the foundation in awarding grants to nonprofit organizations in the Midlands. For the past 16 years, the festival has raised over $735,000 in support of the Foundation’s mission.
On Jan. 10, Feb. 6 and Mar. 7, the festival will present fabulous Food & Wine Dinners where guests will enjoy appetizing meals prepared by local chefs, complimentary wines paired with each course and guest speakers provided by local wine distributors. On Feb. 24 and Mar. 31, patrons can take part in tasting vintage wines, judging South Carolina distributor’s best selections and sampling hors d’oeuvres at formal wine tastings before the Gala Event on Apr. 1. At the culmination of this delicious festival, guests can seize the opportunity to experience over 300 domestic and international wines, as well as sample cuisine from the best local restaurants and caterers in Columbia.
