If you live in Raleigh or Western Wake County and missed the recent food truck rodeo in Durham a few weeks ago you are in luck. The Chatham Hill Winery in Morrisville will be hosting a food truck event this Friday, June 29th from 4-9pm.
Read the event press release below for full details:
“Wine & Food Trucks? Yes, indeed! Chatham Hill Winery, the oldest winery in the area, has teamed up with local food trucks for the first-ever Wine & Food Truck Pairing. The event will be held at Chatham Hill Winery on Friday, June 29th from 4:00 to 9:00 PM at 3800 Gateway Centre Blvd. in Cary/Morrisville.
From its inception, Chatham Hill Winery has been an innovator by being one of the first wineries in the country to mix old world wine tradition and new world wine bravado. The winery’s grapes are grown offsite in the Yadkin Valley of North Carolina. As an Urban Winery, Chatham Hill’s award-winning European style wines are made right here in the Heart of the Triangle. In another cutting edge movement, Chatham Hill Winery is blending the latest culinary craze, Food Trucks, with the Urban Winery experience.
The unique twist on this Wine & Food Truck event is that owner and winemaker, Marek Wojciechowski, will be available to make recommendations for wine and food pairings throughout the event. After seeing the burgeoning food truck scene, Wojciechowski knew what he had to do: “Food trucks are such an amazing idea. Why not push the notion that wine can be enjoyed with most any foods? We just had to figure out a way to bring our wines and food truck offerings together and to the local community.”
There is no admission fee for the event. The food trucks will be charging their regular prices and the winery will have wine available for purchase by the glass or by the bottle. The trucks participating are: Klausie’s Pizza, American Meltdown, Baguettaboutit, Dang Good Dogs, Chirba Chirba Dumpling, Chick N Que and Old North State BBQ. Music provided by DJ Trav Gales. In their continuing support of Operation Homefront, the winery will donate a portion of the evening’s sales and encourage participants to donate as well.
