Scene at the 2017 Wine Vault University City Wine Fest


Wine lovers converged in Charlotte for the first Wine Vault University City Wine Fest, held on April 22 featuring 25 booths sampling over 100 wines from around the world. The Wine Fest is the creation of University City Partners, an economic development group that also seeks to build a more inclusive and socially vibrant University City. UCity Partners teamed with other organizations and businesses to host the annual festival, including Greystar, University City Connect, and The Wine Vault, the event’s title sponsor. Proceeds from the event will support local libraries and their literacy programs.
