Triangle Wine Experience

February 3, 2012

We visited our friends in North Carolina for the Triangle Wine Experience weekend, participating in a Carte Blanche/Bure Family Wines dinner lot at the home of Eliza Kraft Olander, chairperson of the Triangle Wine Experience.  The auction item included dinner for 40 by Chef Nina Psarros of Nina’s Ristorante, with Carolina Hurricanes hockey stars Ron Francis, Eric Staal, Cam Ward, Jeff Skinner and Brandon Sutter, complemented by wine pairings from Carte Blanche and Val Bure’s Bure Family Wines, all held at the home of Eliza Craft Olander. The evening  was an elegant affair and huge success, raising $50,000 for the Frankie Lemmon School & Development Center. Now in its 20th year, this philanthropic weekend attracts national wine aficionados.
