The 15th installment of the Charleston Wine + Food festival offers more than 100 events over a five day span, March 4 – 8, 2020 including signature events, dinners, lunches, brunches, excursions, beverage workshops, hands-on classes, and the festival’s mainstay tasting experience- the Culinary Village. Here are are some of the things we look forward to!

Located in Marion Square, the Culinary Village is the heart + soul of Charleston Wine + Food, and the 2020 menu is bigger and better than ever before.  Opening Friday of festival week at Opening Ceremony and continuing through Sunday, an all-inclusive daily ticket guarantees five hours of tasting, sipping, chef demos, live music, retail therapy, and more. Whether a first time attendee or a Wine + Food veteran, the Culinary Village must be on your festival week itinerary.

Signature Events

Like Winederlust. Winederlust continues to be an event that leaves us on cloud wine year-after-year. So uncork + relax, because we’re bringing it back. Featuring varietals from around the world, this event will satiate every wine drinker’s palate. You’ll taste the vino rainbow as you sip waterside under the stunning live oaks of Kiawah River. Enjoy the spectacle of live-fire cooking and the unmistakable soundtrack of crackling embers + seductively smoky flavors that only burning wood can provide. We’ve carved out a little piece of wine heaven right here in the Lowcountry and we guarantee you’ll have a grape time. No passport required.
