The Wells Fargo Kick-Off Dinner was Charlotte Wine & Food Weekend's opening event for its 31st year of fundraising. This year’s gala, once again held on the 41st floor of the One Wells Fargo building in Uptown, featured special guest Pablo Álvarez, owner and CEO of Tempos Vega Sicilia, Spain’s pre-eminent and most iconic winery. The event raised $110,000 for local kids charities. Photography courtesy of Josh Bannen Photography and Pop Rock Photography
