North Carolina is home to 55 wine producers and ranks 12th for wine production and 10th for grape production in the United States. The second annual "Celebrate North Carolina Wines" will showcase award-winning North Carolina wines, demonstrations of wine and food pairings, and an inside look at viticulture and enology research in NC State's College of Agriculture and Life Sciences along with tastings from 15 wineries across the state. The event is open to the public.
The first half of the event will feature wine tastings, various demonstrations, heavy hors d'oeuvre, live music, and a silent auction. The latter half of the celebration will feature the North Carolina Wine and Grape Council's 2006 awards presentation, along with dessert and coffee.
Tickets are $50.00 in advance and $60.00 at the door. Proceeds will benefit NC State's College of Agriculture and Life Sciences' viticulture and enology research and the JC Raulston Arboretum.
