Welcome to Cape Fear Food & Wine Club!

The Seasoned Gourmet has been teaching cooking classes for over 15 years. The ever-growing interest in all things food and wine led to the forming of the Cape Fear Food & Wine Club, back in July of 2011, to continue serving the needs of home cooks, foodies, and wine lovers living in and visiting the Wilmington area. We offer many unique events for members and their guests, including cooking classes, wine pairing classes, premium wine dinners, and free members-only events throughout the year.

Members also get to enjoy exclusive discounts from our host, The Seasoned Gourmet. Enjoy a 10% discount during classes that you attend. There’s also a special members-only discount wine during events - 15% off 6 or more bottles and 20% off 12 or more bottles.
