Complete Charleston Wine + Food Fest 2019 coverage

Lookin' for beets? Stay for the deets.

I’ve lived in Charleston for almost six years, but I’ve never been privy to as many Charleston Wine + Food Fest events as I’d like. Time, money — you know the deal. This year will be different. I’ll be City Paper’s boots-on-the-ground festival frontman, endeavoring to attend+eat+drink+connect today through the weekend. To do so, I, and the thousands of other foodie foot soldiers around me, will have to strike a happy balance. Walking that delicate line between enjoyment and over-indulgence, celebration and bacchanalia. Writer Stephanie Hunt outlines how to do just this — read on, and I’ll see you in the village. —Mary Scott Hardaway
