Who We Are

The Triangle Wine & Food Experience (TWFE) is North Carolina’s premiere wine and food event with all proceeds benefiting the Frankie Lemmon School & Developmental Center. Chefs, winemakers, and wineries from all over the world participate in this truly amazing event. A three-day affair, TWFE events include wine dinners at the Triangle’s top restaurants, wine tastings, trade events, and culminates in the Grand Gala & Auction, which is held annually on the first Saturday in February.
