When millions of food and wine lovers chose Asheville, North Carolina, among their Top 10 food and wine destinations in the U.S., the secret was finally out: this vibrant and eclectic mountain city is a must-visit, must-taste culinary hot spot. The Travelers’ Choice® Food and Wine Destinations awards, announced in October 2011 by the world’s largest travel site, TripAdvisor, ranked Asheville among larger cities such New York City, San Francisco, New Orleans and Chicago.


In 2010, The Huffington Post named Asheville one of the “Top 10 Undiscovered Local Food Cities.” But with high-profile visits by luminaries ranging from President and First Lady Obama to globe-trotting chef and TV personality Anthony Bourdain to the cast and crew of the blockbuster film “The Hunger Games,” Asheville is on everyone’s lips.


Come discover Asheville at the 2012 Asheville Wine & Food Festival, featuring the finest regional, national, and international wines, exceptional local restaurants, craft beer and spirits, and handcrafted artisanal foods for three days of palate-pleasing indulgence. This highly anticipated event, recognized by the New York Post as one of the best of its kind, will be held in the heart of the city’s lively downtown, where festivalgoers will find a treasure of independent restaurants and shops.
