Wow, we had such an incredible night at our Triangle Wine and Food Experience dinner on Thursday, January 30, 2020. We had the pleasure of hosting Bill Whiting from Castelo Banfi and our wonderful sponsors, Elliott Davis LLC and John and Debra Ratliff. We were excited to announce that our dinner sold out very quickly! Thank you to everyone who bought a ticket. Your generous donation went to one of our favorite organizations, Frankie Lemmon School and Developmental Center. Check out some of our photos and video from the event.

About Castello Banfi
Banfi was founded in 1978 thanks to the will of the Italian-American brothers, John and Harry Mariani. From the beginning, the goal of the two brothers was to create a state-of-the-art winery combined with the most advanced science in the vineyards for the production of premium wines. Together with the Mariani family, Ezio Rivella, one of Italy’s foremost enologists, who understood that due to the richness of the soils and the privileged microclimatic position, the property would have a great capacity of development. In those years, the brothers, John and Harry, also purchased Bruzzone, a historic winery in Piedmont. Founded in 1860 and specialized in the production of sparkling wines, today is known as Banfi Piemonte. Tuscany’s most honored vineyard estate, Castello Banfi’s award-winning wines are exported to over 90 countries around the world. Lauded for groundbreaking research on the Sangiovese vine to produce superior Brunello and super Tuscan wines; producing healthy, more organic wines that are low in sulfites and histamines; and developing cutting edge winemaking techniques, Castello Banfi is the first winery in the world to be awarded international recognition for exceptional environmental, ethical and social responsibility as well as an international leader in customer satisfaction.
