One-of-a-Kind Auction Lots for Naples Winter Wine Festival  



A guided trek with chimpanzees off the shores of Lake Tanganyika in Tanzania; a yacht trip to Havana, Cuba to experience first-hand a nation on the brink of rapid change; and a trip to Los Angeles with Judge Judy onboard her private jet “The Queen Bee” are just a few of the newly unveiled items up for grabs at the 2017 Naples Winter Wine Festival, scheduled for January 27-29, 2017 at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort in Naples, Florida.

Winning bidders will have one-of-a-kind experiences around the world. As part of a luxurious Italian getaway, lucky winners will savor a romantic dinner in Florence on a private terrace right on the Ponte Vecchio overlooking the Arno River. Others can enjoy a VIP experience at Napa Valley’s BottleRock 2017 complete with celebrity meet and greets. If Golden Globe® winners are more to their liking, they can spend the evening with Kevin Bacon first at a private cocktail party in a residence on New York City’s Upper East Side, followed by dinner at The Modern.

Every dollar raised under the auction tent will go toward the Festival’s founding organization, the Naples Children & Education Foundation, whose annual grants have provided more than 200,000 children with the services and resources they need to excel. The Festival has contributed to this cause with more than $146 million raised since its inception.

Ticket packages to the Naples Winter Wine Festival, limited to 580 guests, start at $10,000 per couple. A $25,000 package is also available that includes reserved seating for a party of four at a vintner dinner and under the tent. To inquire about tickets to the Festival, please contact Barrett Farmer at or 239-514-2239.
