CIC Is Proud to be the Beverage Seminar Sponsor for the 2012 BB&T Charleston Wine + Food Festival

This was a successful second year for the Culinary Institute of Charleston as the sponsor for the Festival's wine seminars. The amphitheater at the CIC's Palmer Campus again proved to be a perfect venue.
