Alyssa Smith, The 2023 Charleston Wine + Food Festival

December 20, 2022

Charleston Wine + Food was founded in 2005 by a group of loyal community leaders with a vision of creating an event to promote and elevate Charleston’s culinary brand. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, the Festival infuses homegrown flavor with top chefs, winemakers, authors, storytellers, artisans, experts, and food enthusiasts from around the globe for a five-day event that spans the first full weekend each March.

The 2023 Charleston Wine + Food Festival is taking place March 1-5 and will feature over 100 events at venues across the Tri-County region. This year, the Festival is doing a lot of work this year to “put Charleston back in the Charleston Wine + Food festival” by making it easier than ever for local talent to participate in the festival.
