Once Upon a Wine, Charlotte only had eyes for the wines of California and Australia. But the last decade has given Charlotteans plenty of more reasons to Wine!

Join Trevor Woods, Beverage Director for Cicchetti as he walks you through three wine flights.

Flight 1: Old School Faves

Flight 2: New Kids on the Block

Flight 3: Cicchetti

Your ticket includes tastings of 12 wines, plus a Cicchetti (small bites) flight alongside. Featuring wine from the likes of Silver Oak, Molly Dooker, Orin Swift and Daou.

Advance ticket purchase is required. This is a 21+ event.


Cicchetti (“chee-KEH-tee”), a wine bar in Uptown Charlotte featuring authentic Italian small dishes, interprets the classic Venetian bacaro. At these casual and convivial spots, locals gather to enjoy glasses of wine alongside savory small bites, or cicchetti, Venice’s version of tapas. Offering an all-world wine selection, wines by the glass or bottle, beer, and a curated cocktail list of just your favorites.
