The North Carolina Wine and Beer Festival, presented by Food Lion, heads to The Farm at 95 on Saturday, April 7, 2018.

Sip local NC craft beverages, sample amazing, chef-inspired menus from foods sourced from area farms, and shop local vendors and artisans. Come out and see what makes our state so great and sit back and relax on the farm with a Bedlam Vodka commemorative glass in one hand and a tasty North Carolina inspired treat in the other!
