Lake Norman Wine and Food Festival will Include a Wide Variety of Local Restaurants

Lake Norman Wine and Food Festival's Acting Executive Director, V. Tom
Gardner, shared a preview of the local favors attendees will have a
chance to savor at the upcoming festival. In addition to the dozen
confirmed wineries, six restaurants also plan to participate in the
event, June 5-6, 2010, at Kenton Place in Cornelius, NC.

Up to three signature dishes will be provided by each of the
restaurants, allowing attendees to try several small servings with
event tickets. Participating restaurants currently include: Brooklyn
South Neighborhood Pizzeria, The Creole House on Main Street,
Dressler's Restaurant, Kernel T's Korn Krib, Mayo's Ristorante and
Sangam Indian Cuisine.

"We are fortunate to have such a diverse group of participating
restaurants. With American, Creole, Indian and Italian inspired menu
items, there is a little something for everyone. It is a great
opportunity for residents to try a variety of restaurants that they
may not yet have had a chance to visit," stated Gardner.

In addition to restaurants, the Lake Norman Wine and Food Festival
will feature area wineries and vendors. The event will include a
number of distinct areas including: the Fogle Insurance Group Wine
Tent, wine tastings from local wineries; the Restaurant Galley, small
dishes from local restaurants; as well as a Merchants area, regional
vendors and boutique offerings.

The Lake Norman Wine and Food Festival was founded to benefit local
charities in need and has filed for its 501(c)(3) nonprofit status.
The festival will be donating proceeds to Angels and Sparrows, Hope
House and the Mooresville Soup Kitchen.

Prospective attendees, as well as vendors, restaurants, and sponsors
