Here is your chance to experience Fleurie like you never have before, while helping to feed the area’s hungry: The Charlottesville 29 Restaurant Auctions. Along with all of the other restaurants in The Charlottesville 29, Fleurie has created a once-in-a-lifetime experience for whoever pledges the highest donation to The Blue Ridge Area Food Bank. Thanks to the generosity of Fleurie, the entire winning bid goes directly to the food bank. And, thanks to the efficiency of the food bank, each dollar donated creates four meals for the area’s hungry.

The Fleurie signature experience for The Charlottesville 29 Restaurant Auctions:

Wine Dinner of a Lifetime

For more than a decade, Fleurie has been among Charlottesville’s top destinations for lovers of food and wine. Fleurie will join one of the region’s best wineries, Lovingston Winery, to host a dream gastronomic experience for oenophiles. The auction winner and up to nineteen guests will sit on the veranda of Lovingston Winery and enjoy an over-the-top feast with show-stopping wines. Fleurie owner Brian Helleberg will dig deep into his personal cellar for rare and special bottles that sommelier Melissa Boardman will pair with the group’s dinner. As for the food, that will depend on the season, but from caviar to truffles to foie gras, Helleberg and Chef Joe Walker plan to create a meal that the group will never forget.

It’s the ultimate Fleurie dining experience: Wine Dinner of a Lifetime.

Estimated value: $7,500.

Note: The auction winner will schedule the experience at a mutually convenient time with Fleurie and Lovingston Winery.
