Randi Weinstein, who spent seven years with the Charleston Wine + Food Festival and became its most recognizable face after the resignation of founding director Angel Postell, today announced her departure.

"There is a short window for me to depart for a smooth transition, and that's now. I'm sad to go, but excited for new opportunities," Weinstein, director of events, is quoted as saying in a release from the Festival. "My heart will always be with the Festival, and I believe it will grow and do great things in Year 10 and beyond."
