Triangle Wine & Food Experience

What Is TWFE?

The Triangle Wine & Food Experience (TWFE) is North Carolina’s premier wine and food event with all proceeds benefiting the Frankie Lemmon School & Developmental Center. TWFE is held annually the first weekend in February. Winemakers and chefs from all over the world, as well as thousands of donors and supporters, participate in this truly amazing event. The event is a three-day affair, including winery dinners at the Triangle’s top restaurants, wine tastings at area wine shops, and trade events. TWFE weekend culminates in the Grand Auction, which features a dazzling selection of wine and food, and an exciting auction that includes fine and rare wines, event tickets, artwork, and one-of-a-kind trips and experiences.
