Raleigh Food and Wine Festival 2017 Review

First off, our trip to Raleigh was amazing and totally worth it. We were able to attend the annual Raleigh Food and Wine Festival, which they did an amazing job this year with an incredible amount of local establishments making a huge splash. The line up had lots of great Raleigh spots including Plates, Lucettegrace, The Wine Feed, Mandolin, Capital Club 16, Mulino, Whole Foods, H-Street, and Pinetop Distillery.

Raleigh Food and Wine Festival was Amazing!

This year we went to the Whole Foods Market for a Friday evening “Pig Pickin’ with Fullsteam Brewery”. We sat on the patio and enjoyed music from Hearts & Daggers. What we had to eat:

  • Smoked Local Whole Hog Pork from Jones Family Farm in Burgaw, NC with Paycheck Pilsner BBQ Sauce
  • Roasted Potato Salad with Fearrington Spring Saison Vinaigrette
  • Coleslaw with Creamy Humidity Pale Ale Dressing
  • Grilled Peach with Mascarpone Cream & Honey made with Moccasin Creek Muscadine Ale

We also attended the Tasting event on Sunday. We love the tasting event because there is always so much food to enjoy. And did I mention the drinks? There is also plenty of great drinks to wash it all down.

Local Piano Moving Company in Raleigh Sponsor Free Performance

We also got to see a free piano performance hosted by NC Piano Movers in Raleigh. There’s truly nothing like a good glass of wine, classical piano and great company. I highly recommend to visit or go to Raleigh if you can.

Hope to see you there next year at the Annual Raleigh Food and Wine Festival.
