A shining example of the growing Charlotte food scene, Bonterra Dining and Wine Room offers great views, flavorful dishes, and a healthy selection of wines to its diners. We think it’s a perfect spot to grab a glass of wine after a stressful workday, for the following five reasons.
1. An extensive selection
At Bonterra, everyone can find exactly the wine they’re looking for. Whether you are an experienced, world-traveled wine connoisseur or are just starting to dip your toes into the world of vineyards, Bonterra has quality wines that will impress you. The wine room at Bonterra is stocked with 200 wines by the glass and EVEN MORE available by the bottle!
2. Cheese and charcuterie plates
The classic pairing for an afternoon wine, the cheese and charcuterie plates at Bonterra are delightful. They come with Humboldt Fog, Clemson Bleu Cheese, Benton’s Country Ham, Tartufo Salumi, and more. Get the house made crustinis or ask for gluten-free crackers and munch away.
3. The stunning view
The current Bonterra structure used to be the Atherton Methodist Church and was originally the first house of prayer in the local area. As befitting such a historic location, the view at Bonterra is wonderful. Take a seat on the restaurant’s beautiful patio while indulging in that perfect glass of wine after a long day at work. It’s a combo that is sure to reduce your stress, especially in the summer weather.
4. A menu that includes the famous Church Burger
Bonterra features a menu specifically designed for wine pairing, with cheese boards, house-made spreads for crustinis, and more. One of the best parts of the menu is Chef Blake’s Famed Wood Grilled Church Burger. Topped with house-made bread & butter pickles, tomatoes, onions and lettuce, the burger is made of certified Angus beef smothered in delectable Ashe County Cheddar. Bonterra always has an awesome burger on the menu.
5. A local locale
Bonterra is centrally located in Southend/Dilworth, which makes it an ideal stop as you make your way home from work. The restaurant is built on being a local staple, with Executive Chef Blake Hartwick proclaiming “we are firm believers in the great farms around us and try to use whatever is fresh and local in our dishes.”
Bonterra’s fare includes something for everyone, from steaks to seafood and pasta to veggies. With the restaurant’s partnership with local farmers, you’ll always find the freshest produce on the menu.
