Triangle Wine Experience 2019

Triangle Wine Experience (TWE) is a world-class charity wine and food event in Raleigh, NC which attracts thousands of participants who share a love of fine wine, great food and a charitable spirit.  

TWE is the primary source of funding for the Frankie Lemmon School & Developmental Center. In 2018, TWE raised over $2 million for the School.

The event usually takes place the first weekend in February each year and attracts some of the world’s best wineries and the Triangle’s best restaurants and chefs.  

Last year, over 1,700 people participated in 42 wine dinners on the same night at 37 of the top restaurants in the Triangle and 3 private homes, and our Gala and Grand Auction was attended by over 600 people who enjoyed the food of 19 award-winning chefs and 70 of the world’s top wineries.
