Community Wine Dinners

Community wine dinners bring together Raleigh, Durham, Cary, and Chapel Hills’ best restaurants and renowned wineries from around the world together. Across the Triangle, restaurants and wineries work in concert to offer guests inspired multicourse menus showcasing the best in each for one night only. Each course is intentionally paired with a selection from the featured winery and is guided by the attending winemaker, creating a culinary experience marked most vividly by the company it was shared with.
