The Alpharetta Wine Festival is part of Cork & Cru Social's portfolio of events. The 501(c)3 was founded by long time friends Peggy Robinson and Dwight Cunningham. After graduating from college at Johnson & Wales University, both moved to the Atlanta area. With a shared passion for wine, they wanted to create events which provide an exceptional experience for wine enthusiasts, support the business community, and benefit local charities. Both co-founders have earned Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET), level two certifications - with merit. Since 2012, Cork & Cru Social has donated thousands each year to worthwhile Atlanta-area organizations.
